Ferryside, River Fowey


Ferryside on the River Fowey in Bodinnick, Cornwall was bought by the du Maurier family in 1926. It was here that the author Daphne du Maurier wrote her first novel The Loving Spirit although she is probably best known for her novel Rebecca.

This painting is the view looking across the river and was inspired by photographs that I had taken whilst out kayaking on a glorious summer’s day. On the left hand side is Bodinnick where the ferry docks from Fowey – a short trip but very picturesque.

This high quality giclee print is mounted and will fit a ready made 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.
