Daughters of the Rivers

I painted these four for the upcoming Tavistock Group of Artists exhibition in Tavistock. I can enter up to 8 large paintings and 4 small paintings: I had loads of big ones, but no small ones, so I painted these four.  Because if I'm going to exhibit, I might as well do it properly.   I've bought a bunch of frames and mounts too: fairly cheap ones on Ebay, but the pictures do look a lot more complete when framed. I had to come up with prices for all of them, because the exhibition only shows paintings that are for sale. THAT was hard.

Fingers crossed.  What could possibly go wrong?

Lynher.  She is standing on one of the old D-day quays that still exists, so I gave her some rusty armour.



Tamar.  The Tamar is the biggest river, and the brownest, and also has grey seals.  I think the apples are probably the heritage variety 'Tamar Beauty'.


The Tavy is a fast-flowing river that goes through Tavistock, where they sell those hats.  And also she has a hydro-electric power plant that powers the town.


And the Walkham is a pretty little river full of small flashing fish, that never really grows up, because she flows into the Tavy, and then the Tavy flows into the big curvy river Tamar.

I like these, how you made the river daughters match the character of the river and they're so different!

I'm quite pleased with how they have come out : they seem to be personalities, and I feel that rivers should have those!

They're great, I love the Tamar with the seal and apples. You've made me want to go wild swimming again, looking at them :)
