Fishing at Sunset - Painting by Rolf Harris

Fishing at Sunset

Painting by Rolf Harris

Originally called “Sunset Malta Best Time to Fish” by the artist and changed by Portland Gallery to “Fishing at Sunset”.  Painted in 2004.  This was inspired by some photographs taken looking directly into the sun in Malta.

In the resulting painting Rolf particularly liked the use of opposite colours, red and deep translucent green.  The green creates a great impression of looking down throughout the water, especially in the shadow of the various boats.  The reflection of the brilliant sunlight bouncing off the waves works very well and the way the colour of these reflections moves from pearl white through to brilliant yellow contrasts so well with the red and pink colours on the surface of the waves.

The painting was released in a limited edition of 395 plus 40 artist’s proofs on paper and 125 plus 10 artist’s proofs on canvas in 2006.

This the Original. A great investment opportunity for the future.
