Start Point Lighthouse is a stunning part of the South Devon coast
This lighthouse bravely stands on the precarious end of a long jagged finger of rock curving out into the sea. Whether you walk down the winding road from the carpark or, after visiting Mattiscombe Bay first, approach it along the South East Coastal path, it's a breathtaking place. In Spring the slopes are filled with Bluebells and are a pure delight.

This digital painting is in the style of a popular linocut print (See below). I've used the same approach to this painting as I would when designing/planning the linocut print. The advantage of this however is that I can offer it at a reduced price because there's no cutting lino or paper, mixing inks and individually printing each colour using my hand wound press (no plugs, not on/off switches). This artwork instead is printed by a professional fine art printing company who use the finest quality archival papers and inks. I can also offer it at several sizes once I've worked out what those are! I've only just published this artwork (7 Nov 2019) so will confirm once I get to it on my To-do list.
I've more lighthouse art I'm sketching ideas for at the time of writing this. There's something about lighthouses isn't there. I've also a long list of oil paintings I want to make of this part of Devon and never enough hours in a day!
