Amsterdam Point


On the same circular walk as that describing Shirley’s ‘Up the Percuil River’ painting, she stopped for a picnic at the half-way point. Sitting on a steep, west facing slope, making the most of the glorious summer sunshine, she not only overlooked the magnificent Place House, but also had a view of Cellars Beach, and on past Amsterdam Point to St Mawes. There is an imposing house which stands out against the darkness of the trees behind the light sand of Cellars Beach.

The line of the beach takes you round to the centre of the painting which leads your eye to the white boats moored in the distance. It is a summers day – the sky is light blue and the sunlight glistens on the water. The black trunks of the trees in the foreground add a dramatic effect with the deep turquoise blue of the water and lime green of the trees and bushes.

This high quality giclee print is mounted (mount size 400 x 400mm ) and will fit a standard readymade frame.

Shirley Netherton

I am a Cornish artist who has spent many years developing my unique style of painting with acrylics so that today my work is instantly recognisable. I feel lucky that the hobbies which I enjoy in my free time contribute towards my intense enthusiasm for painting. The photographs I take whilst walking and kayaking become the reference material for my work. I am so fortunate to live in such a beautiful county, surrounded by the sea with so many inland waterways - truly inspirational.
