Rame Head is located a few miles west of Plymouth on the southern coast of Cornwall, England. I was inspired to paint this by the wonderful light that prevailed on this August afternoon and by the clarity of the sea, which was almost dead calm, enabling you to see the rocks under the water. I particularly like the turquoise colours around the rocks, so often seen in the bays on the southern Cornish coast.
The only access to the beach below was by boat and I could see a couple enjoying the seclusion, along with their dog.
