AUTHOR: Gerry Miles
The South Hams Coast
The South Hams Coast
  • Description

Gerry Miles is an accomplished landscape painter who shares his time between his family home in The Netherlands and his retreat in Hope Cove, South Devon. He has devoted five years to an intensive study of the South Hams Coast, encapsulating this area of outstanding natural beauty in a series of stunning acrylic paintings.

His fascination with the play of light, the nuance of tones, and the subtle contributions that aerial perspective and colour harmony make to the ambience of a scene, results in his ability to capture natureís elusive moods and atmospheres throughout the seasons.

60 beautiful landscape paintings reproduced in full colour are supplemented by 62 detailed pencil drawings that are vignettes symbolising the character and essence of the Devon coast and countryside.

An ambitious project to develop a comprehensive illustrated guide to this treasured heritage coast and its wonderful river estuaries has resulted in a unique and extraordinary book, that for the first time combines an artistís personal impressions with colourful aerial views and maps of 18 circular walks. These open the way for the reader to experience and share first hand the delights of a coastline that has become this artistís passion.

The scope of the book encompasses the region between the River Dart in the east and the River Yealm in the west. It carries informative coastal descriptions, comprehensive walking directions, interesting historical facts, notable landmarks, and includes detailed profiles of every beach and cove that is accessible from the south-west coastal path.
