In this work he has chosen to paint the quiet beach on the north-east edge of the town which is sheltered from the worst of the elements. In the background the ancient chapel of St Nicholas on St Ives Head is clearly visible, surmounted by two stone crosses. In 1904 the chapel was destroyed by order of the War Office, being rebuilt and restored in 1911 in celebration of the Coronation of George V. No Pearce seascape would be complete without an anchored boat, here sited outside Porthgwidden bay.
