Gillan Creek

About Gillan Creek

Gillan Creek is a small inlet lying just to the south of the much larger Helford River in Cornwall. Access by road is best through the lovely village of Manaccan, but this is not an easy area of Cornwall to reach. At the mouth of the creek is the church of St. Anthony in Maneage, first mentioned in 1170. During the Civil War a small fort was built by the Royalists on the nearby Dinas, this being the last place in Cornwall in which they held out, until finally surrendering to Sir Thomas Fairfax in March 1646.

In this painting I have tried to capture the feeling of breadth across the bay with the receding tide. As the sea level drops, sand bars are exposed below the surface of the water. It was early morning - full daylight but there was no heat in the day. The dark greens of the bushes formed an intricate spherical pattern against the bright, angular fields. Your gaze seems to drift into the cool stillness of this painting.

This painting is on a box canvas with the sides painted and comes ready to hang or can be framed.
