Artist's Notes

Artist's Notes:

I lived in Cornwall, England for 23 years ... Poldark country. But many of the scenes I have painted over the years, you might say most of them whilst living in Cornwall, were of Poldark country, since all of Cornwall is really Poldark country.

For sixteen years, I had lived a mile and a half from Bedruthan Steps, and it became one of my favorite bits of coast to go to and to paint. For four months during the Winters, the top of the stairs were blocked, but I had discovered how to scramble over the blockade, and so have the place all to myself, rarely seeing anyone else who might also know how to get down there.

Pendarves Cove, in the painting above is the first cove you descend to, down the narrow stairway in a crack in the cliffs. That would be to the left off the painting. Another of my paintings with the shadows of early morning, from this viewpoint, was in the “Artist's and Illustrator’s Magazine,” back in the early 2000s ... Issue #19 rings a bell. On a Summer morning, with an ebbing tide, from this point you can scramble around into the next cove, Redcove, and if you watch the waves and are quick enough, you can get into it twenty minutes or so before any of the Summer visitors find their way into that cove. Then skirting around to the other side, there is a cave that you can scramble through, and be in the third cove (which name escapes me at present), and be there for an hour and a half, before any one else makes it around the headland ... few people were aware that the cave went all the way through, I discovered, and besides, it was a bit of a scramble as well. Bedruthan Steps became one of my favorite painting subjects, during my final years in Cornwall.

Incidentally, Bedruthan was a Cornish giant who fled across the coves here, using the sea stacks as stepping stones, when fleeing the devil one night ... at least according to local folklore; and who would dispute such a venerable source?!!

How is the Ending of a DPW Auction Different?

Important: All auction ending times are in central time (CDT).

There is no more last second bidding!

Online auctions, which end at a fixed time, can cause anxiety and end in dissapointment when you lose the auction to someone who was simply able to outbid in the last seconds.

DPW Auctions auto-extend themselves to one minute remaining when any bid is placed within the last minute of the auction's end.

This means the auction ends only when there is no more bidding in the last minute. This approach allows the bidder who wants the painting the most to buy it without out any sense of panic.

No need to frantically click the refresh button!

A DPW Auction page will automatically update itself to show the latest bidding during the last 10 minutes of an auction. There is no need to click the refresh button, simply sit back and watch the timer count down the seconds remaining and be automatically alerted if anyone outbids you.

How does the DPW Auction Buy It Now Option Work?

An artist can choose to offer a Buy It Now option for a DPW Auction. This option will remain available until the first bid is placed, after which the Buy It Now option disappears.

When you click the Buy It Now button, you will be taken to a PayPal page where you can pay.

How does DPW Auction Bidding Work?

DPW Auctions uses the familiar Max Bid proxy approach.

When you place a bid, you are specifying the maximum you are willing to bid and you are agreeing to allow DPW to place bids automatically for you up to that maximum when others place bids higher than your high bid.

DPW will automatically place bids on your behalf, up to this maximum, as others bid.

If someone else places a bid equal to your maximum, then an auto-bid equal to your maximum is place for you and you remain the highest bidder.

No one else, not even the artist, knows what your maximum bid is. This keeps another bidder from entering a new bid, just under your maximum, simply to push the high bid up.

If someone else places a bid greater than your maximum, then they become the new highest bidder and the new high bid is equal to your last max bid plus the minimum increment in the following table:

Minimum Bid Increment

You can increase, but not decrease, your max bid at any time.
