Sea Blue Art, Paintings from Cornwall

Sea Blue Art, Paintings from Cornwall

Born in Cape Town South Africa in 1971 this talented Cornish artist Andy Pearce moved to London with his parents in 1975.

With a love of surfing and keen interest in photography he moved to Cornwall in 1991, where he was inspired by the rugged coastline and wonderful views of the Atlantic that can be seen whilst walking Cornwall's coastal paths.

His surfing trips took him to remote Cornish beaches where the scenery cultivated an inner need to express his love of the coastline and ocean.

Andy Pearce set about teaching himself to paint and having a natural flair for painting was soon capturing the wonderful Cornish sunsets.

Like many other artists Andy works on location making small sketches and watercolours, then returns to his studio to create the finished paintings of seascapes, sunsets, waves and coastal scenes in acrylics on canvas or board.

The Cornish Artist Andy Pearce

He loves to paint coastal scenes around the North Cornwall coast, Constantine Bay and the Hayle Estuary being his favourite places to paint.

His paintings are in a modern style concentrating on the use of colour but with a limited palette in order to convey a sense of depth and atmosphere to his paintings.

Andy Pearce Painting a Seascape in his Studio A lot of his work is done on stretched box canvas and then varnished so there is no need for framing as the canvas is painted around the edge of the box. However where mounting is necessary, as is the case with painting on board, Andy Pearce likes to mount and frame the paintings himself. Framing the paintings himself enables him to add to the painting by creating unique mounts and frames. Many of the paintings are double mounted behind glass in a modern Ash frame.

Although he has successful exhibitions in London and exhibits in many galleries in the South West he also likes to attend art shows and craft fairs so that he can meet and talk to purchasers of his paintings.

While continuing to paint his seascapes, sunsets, waves and coastal scenes Andy Pearce is still developing his style and is now investigating the dramatic effect of black and white seascapes.

Although Andy's work can be found in a number of countries already, he would like to bring the excitement of the rugged Cornish coastline to exhibitions in other countries. In this way descendants of Cornish emigrants can share in his joy.

A Message from the Artist

I hope you enjoy looking around my site and you get as much joy from viewing my paintings as I did in creating them.
