Oil Painting 1 – Marina

By Rob Pointon

Marina

Where it all began … This painting was produced from the stern of our narrowboat whilst it was moored in Etruria Marina before the voyage took place. We spent a year in this spot fitting out the inside of the boat after buying it as an empty shell.

I liked the huddle of many brightly painted boats packed together slowly bobbing and creaking independently. It was quite a windy spot and I have tried to reflect this in the diagonal treatment of the background.
