Cornwall Gallery Painting by Joanne Short. 'Spring Flowers Polruan'. 
18 x 18 inches, oil on canvas

In this stunning oil painting of the view across the River Fowey to Polruan and out to sea, Joanne captures the feeling of a perfect spring day as we peep through the daffodils and primroses. Several boats sail into the mouth of the river while others are moored near the town. The sumptuous colours of the flowers in the foreground are echoed in the patterned fields on the headlands creating a sense of harmony. The atmosphere in the painting is one of calm and tranquility; the perfect Cornish holiday feeling.
