Big Port Isaac Painting

Following up on my little Port Isaac painting in December is this bigger feature canvas of the Cornish fishing village. The port is up on the Atlantic Coast near to Wadebridge and is perhaps best known as a location in TV and film. There was so much wonderful detailing in the buildings down at the quayside and it was great to have an opportunity to get lost in them on a larger composition. Lots of line work to balance across the centre of the painting. It allowed more painterly effects in the foreground too and I particular like the way the hills roll away in the background.

Created with acrylic and ink, the artwork itself is 70 x 50cm and is a lovely mantlepiece size framed up at 74 x 54cm. The white floater frame gives it a lovely light touch when hung in a living space. I’m hoping someone will give this one a nice home! My Port Isaac painting will be listed for sale on the studio shop as an original (my originals are also available over on my Saatchi listings), but due to a few advance requests there will also be a limited edition print run of 25 available soon!
