Stage Lighting. Minack Theatre.


Full of drama, interest and quirky shapes Diana. Love the palette and the band of light.

Lovely texture throughout . from the craggy rocks to the silken sheen on the water.

superb as ever Diana

Thank you very much Carole I’m very happy to call it a day on this one ! Thank you Sarah. It was a painting that needed standing back from frequently

Thank you David. Good of you to leave your feedback

The lighting is superb, really makes the picture.

Having recently watched a concert from there on the internet, you’ve done a great painting capturing the lighting. I’ve never been but looks like a special theatre.

Love this Diana and your competition entry. Always enjoy this location too.

Lots of tricky angles and perspectives in this one Diana, what a success in all respects.

Love the band of light Diana and how your eyes get gently guided through the scene to settle on the door near the stage.

Light really special in this Diana, superb as always, and a this place holds a favourite memory for me, when I was teaching in Cornwall, many years ago! lovely!

Thank you Romila. This took so much longer than usual. I agree Stephen, without the light, this would be rather dull. Thank you. Thank you Christine. The back cloth changes constantly. Beautiful Thank you Elaine. It’s a rather unique bit of architecture. I’m intrigued to know where my competition entry has been seen because several people have mentioned it. I forgot which pictures I submitted 😂 Thanks you though. Morning Fiona. As I started drawing the theatre , I did did fear for my sanity. I usually avoid mathematical lines. Thank you very much. Thank you Anjana. I think that band of light is magical. Hello Thalia. It’s certainly somewhere you’d never forget. This might be the year I go and live near Penzance. We inherited a house there a few years ago but I’ve resisted moving so far

This is just magical.

What a lovely thing to say. Thanks Ellen.

Beautiful watercolour.

Thank you for your interest Paula.

Hang on Studio Wall

Half imperial watercolour. This was the most challenging piece I’ve done for a while. I wanted to capture that band of light after the rain without it becoming too fussy with all the detail in the theatre
