Boats at Port Navas


Boats at Port Navas – Giclee Print

On a road from Mawnan Smith to Constantine (where there is the most incredible village shop that should be visited by every resident of, and visitor to Cornwall!) is Port Navas. Much of the village, as seen today, was constructed in the 19th century to accommodate those engaged in the shipping of granite quarried from the Constantine area. Higher and Lower Quay sit alongside Porthnavas Creek, where granite blocks would be loaded onto waiting ketches, schooners, and smacks, before making their way down to Helford River and away into the open ocean.

This large painting shows the shoreline with the almost womanly curves of low tide. A hint of blue is introduced on the white horizon upon which drift bulbous clouds which reach upwards and out of sight . Three boats line up at the water’s edge – waiting perhaps for the return of the tide.

This high quality giclee print is mounted 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.
