about Larry Johns

Porthtowan, on the north coast of Cornwall UK - my childhood playground. It's no surprise, then, that with any kind of an artistic bent, if I ending up painting anything at all, it would be the sea

  • Some random information

    • shoreline waves

      I spent my entire childhood dipping my toes into waves just like these. In fact, if I stepped out of our front gate at a high spring tide and walked ten paces I would already be paddling.

      "Seal's Cove"

      In tranquil mood.

      I paint a lot in and around this cove, on the north cliffs of Cornwall. It can be a dangerous place; Trippers are constantly getting cut off there, generally requiring the services of the rescue people.

      "The Devil's Tooth"

      Another dangerous place, this, but it's the best place to find heavy waves...just the kind we like to paint. The actual rock is barely visible through the spume!

      Can I ask?

      After a lot of research and homework I think I have cracked the now-universal"www" problem of making a website viewable on a mobile phone as well as a PC. The on-going problem, however, is that the world can now get online using just about anything with a battery in it.

      So, if you are viewing this site on...(I don't know; a Mongolian egg-timer, maybe, or something equally as unlikely)...and it doesn't look quite right, perhaps you would let me know about it?
