This is one of my original paintings on driftwood. It depicts a typical west country harbour scene, with shops, cottages, boats, beaches and surrounding countryside. These paintings are painted on pieces of driftwood I find on the beaches close to my home in Devon, and are inspired by the beautiful local scenery. The driftwood is prepared and coated with watercolour ground before being painted with watercolour and gouache, and then coated with matt varnish for protection. The colours are bright and vibrant, and hence reminiscent of summer holidays and trips to the seaside. I hope this evokes happy memories! This painting comes ready to hang with a string loop, and will enhance any room.
