The Village Bench


 This is also available as a print

Original artwork by Shirley Netherton.

This painting was inspired by three photographs! The first was of a thatched cottage in Hinton, Dorset which has been combined with a second image of a duck pond in Ashmore! The third addition was the bench which is actually from my local park in Truro, Cornwall. I guess you could call this artistic license but it has created a truly charming image.

There are some lovely warm tones in this painting – it feels like a summer’s day, just right for taking some time away from the hustle and bustle of life to sit on the village bench. This painting is also available as a giclee print.

This original artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. Signed by the artist.

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.
