Susan Isaac – The Ship Inn at Porthleven

For this second Porthleven painting (which is now with the Customs House Gallery), what initially drew me to the view was the combination of the iron strut straddling the harbour wall and the dynamic top line of the wall sweeping around the harbour towards the Ship Inn. The wall was stacked with lobster pots, whose textured netting made an interesting counterpoise to the smooth blocks of masonry. In the foreground, a massive rusting chain trailing across and into the composition, anchors three sides of the canvas.

    They say every picture tells a story and your painting tells me a wonderful story. I love it!
