I have had a love of estuaries since childhood when I spent of lot of time in Salcombe, Devon which is on a beautiful estuary, where it meets the sea. I sailed with my father and had a little motor boat that I spent many a happy hour exploring the creeks and tributaries. I have been back there many times as an adult and when at home I like to visit The Swale which is between the north Kent coast and the Isle of Sheppey. I find it has a mysterious and haunting quality and also a very good pub!! This painting is inspired by low tide at The Swale, and is acrylic on narrow edge box canvas is ready to hang.
