Boats at Fawley

Boats at Fawley - acrylic painting

M P Davey river hamble hampshire painting
Boats at Fawley, Hampshire with power station in the background
This Hampshire painting features a scene from Warsash looking across Southampton Water with the large power station at Fawley. The boats in the foreground rest on the mud banks of the River Hamble which intersects at this point with Southampton Water, a very busy shipping route that leads to the Solent.
The power station, built in 1971 is a famous landmark in the area and the chimney is 650ft tall. The power station closed in 2013 so the distinctive and visible icon for miles will eventually disappear when demolition is complete.
The acrylic painting is on stretched paper sized at 12" x 16" and done during January 2016.
