O3 Gallery – The Old Harbour Wall at Polperro

After the throng of St Ives in season, Polperro seems like an undiscovered tranquil location. Perhaps it is the more tightly constructed geography surrounding the harbour that protects it and promotes the feeling of shelter from the world.

Susan Isaac – The Old Harbour Wall at Polperro

In this painting  I liked the juxtaposition of sunlit cottages on the far bank with the shaded section of old harbour wall running at right angles, creating an area of interest in the foreground. The mast of the sailing vessel connects the two areas of the painting, its blue hull further emphasising the bright blue shadows that abounded on this bright summer day.
