There is a walk which will take you along the banks of the Truro River from Malpas to St Clements near Truro in Cornwall. The Truro River runs south to join the River Fal and then on to the impressively broad expanse of Carrick Roads, where river and sea meet. Along the way is a vantage point from where Shirley looked back and saw the village of Malpas. Here ferry boats dock at low tide, when  they are unable to reach Truro itself, as they ply their trade between Truro and Falmouth.

This painting was inspired by a photograph taken from that vantage point. It is quite a way above the level of the Truro river so when you look at the painting you feel as though you are there, peering over the bushes and  down towards the water, before following the river to its final destination. And on the way, 2 boats are moored, their whiteness contrasting sharply with the brilliant blue of the water.

This high quality giclee print is mounted (mount size 40.6 x 50.8cm) and will fit a standard readymade 16″ x 20″ 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.
