Painting Summary

A landscape painting of Bristol Harbour by local artist Neil Watson. Painted in 2021, this painting depicts the colourful nature of the place, as seen from the south bank.

This is the painting that reignited my love of art. It was my first painting in over twenty years since failing art at school and abandoning the idea of a career in the field.
