Tresillian – Giclee Print

3 miles east of Truro on the A390 is the small village of Tresillian. Here you will find the delightful, thatched Wheel Inn, said to have been the headquarters of Sir Thomas Fairfax during the Battle of Tresillian during the Civil War. A short distance to the east is Tresillian Bridge upon which, on the 10th March, 1645, Fairfax negotiated terms with Ralph Hopton, who agreed to move his Royalist troops away and allow Fairfax to occupy Truro.

The Tresillian River runs under the bridge and south towards Malpas, where it joins the Truro River. Travelling through the village of Tresillian one day I saw the river over the trees, winding its way to join the Truro River. This painting was done from  the memory of that day – the river meandering its way through the outcrops of a land laden with bushes and trees to a distant shore.

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.
