I was out on one of my walks recently along the river Barrow here in the not so sunny south east of Ireland. I saw this bright red dot of colour in the distance, a beautiful red canoe. So this painting is the result. I was interested more in the colour and the shape of the canoe, so the painting is impressionistic with the colour tones of red softened here and there.
