Godrevy must be one of my most favourite places in Cornwall, luckily we live very close to can visit in both summer and winter.
The beach almost disappears at high tide, but at low tide you can almost walk to Gwithian and look back towards the lighthouse. The waves frequently crash against the rocks, even on the most beautiful, summers day.
When the tide is out I like nothing better than walking along in the shallow water, and the tide washes against my feet. I must confess to not being brave enough to swim, but quite a few other people are. In some of these paintings I have tried to capture the reflective quality of the beach shining through the shallow water.
