Up the Tresillian River


Up the Tresillian River – Giclee Print

While walking in an area known as Higher Lanner, close to the hamlet of Porth Kea near Truro, Cornwall, I looked across fields to the village of Malpas and beyond, up the Tresillian River. The word ‘Porth’ is usually given to a port but Porth Kea is on high ground, the origin of the name being something of a mystery. This view is an example of the delights of a walk in the Cornish countryside, where little cameos unexpectedly appear.

In this painting, the dark trees create a striking contrast with the brilliant coloured bushes. The curves of the shore line lead you to the distant horizon, and along the way 2 boats lie in the still water.

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.
