Twilight at the river Torridge, Bideford
Twilight at the river Torridge, Bideford


There was a hint of pink in the sky that evening, and the old harbour town of Bideford was cast in a blue shade. This evening it wasn't Victorian novelist Charles Kingsley's "Little white town" for sure! A cruise ship is moored on the quay and the signature blue crane that empties large bulk carrying ships when the tide is high is visible too.

A rare townscape amongst my many nature inspired works, I think this painting stands out as an urban painting where nature nearly steals the show after all.
