Tower on the edge.

I decided to paint this subject to try to express the feeling I experienced on seeing the loneliness and desertion I thought it portrayed. Obvously the tower, originally built for what purpose I don't know, has now been forgotten and left to the mercy of the sea. With the relentless waves continually pounding it, I am sure, it won't be that long before it is has completely disappeared.

My inspiration was taken from a painting by Geoff Kelsey
