Last year, I visited a place in Cornwall called Lizards Point, it was beautiful to see mountains, hills and a beautiful sea I would never have expected to see here in the UK. It was very reminiscent of the time I went to St Ives in 2009 to learn how to paint landscapes, so this painting feels like a love letter to that time. I painted using acrylic paints.
I knew two people who were in love and who were separated by the sea, so they wanted to remember that feeling. As a gift I recreated the image I saw when I was with them on their last evening together. They watched over the sea on the Tangalan beach, Panay Island in the Philippines.I wanted to create a very romantic sky so I gave it a peach hue as if it was sunrise or sunset, showing that although this romance is a new beginning, it will soon end because they will soon have to part ways.
