Painting Fowey

Fowey, an historic, picturesque and favourite port of mine, the name Fowey is pronounced in ‘English English’ as opposed to any other version of English, ‘Foy’ like ‘toy’, ‘boy’ or ‘bouy’.

The port of Fowey, Cornwall, painted from location studies, one in particular.

That oil sketch made as I semi sheltered in the ruin of Polruan Block House, a square tower that used to support the East end of a barrier chain across the harbour mouth, as the gale was in progress (click further reading below), a tug and pilot boat assist a coaster entering the port to load English China Clay.

Fowey was the opposite shore and while painting I had a little ‘tête à tête ‘with an angler, another and related story, see “further reading“.
