Paddling – colorful contemporary original acrylic art



This was inspired by a walk along the river that runs to one of my favourite beaches. I happened to be wearing a funky pair of wellies my sister gave me and when I looked down at my feet, I was intrigued by the colour of the stones under the shallow water at the edge of the river and snapped a quick photo on my phone to use as a reference for this painting.

This has been painted on a deep edge canvas measuring 30 x 30 x 4cm so does not need to be framed. The edges are painted in a midnight blue/indigo and, as with all my artwork, the painting has been sprayed with a satin varnish to protect from UV light and dust.

Postage within the UK is free and will be by Royal Mail tracked/signed for. Postage elsewhere will be by Royal Mail International signed for.

Hi, I’m Nicola McLean, an artist from the north of Ireland, currently living in the far north of Scotland with three fancy rats, two west highland terriers and one husband.

I paint whatever inspires me – nine times out of ten that will be animals of all shapes and sizes but I also love landscapes both urban and natural, all of which I re-imagine using as colourful a palette as possible.
