The Clock Tower, Poros


Original Painting – The Clock Tower, Poros

This painting was inspired by a photograph of Poros as the ferry left to go back to Piraeus on the mainland. I loved the complex patterns of the buildings above which you can see the symbol of Poros town, the clock tower ‘Roloi’. And in the water sat boats and ferries, waiting to take holiday makers to their various destinations.

The clock tower stands proudly on a rocky outcrop against the pale blue sky. In the distance are barren hills dotted with a few cyprus trees and bushes. White yachts can be seen on the far side whilst in the foreground the craft are of a more utilitarian nature.

This original painting is on a deep edged canvas with painted sides and is ready to hang or can be framed. It is also available as a high quality giclee print.

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.
