Bournemouth Throop Mill Through Trees
Painting - Oil On Canvas
This landscape paainting illustrates the old mill at Throop, located in the suburbs of Bournemouth, Dorset. The Parsons and Son flour mill has been out of use since the 1970s and is located on the River Stour. It buildings dates from the turn of the 20th century and was water powered. It is now a Grade II listed building awaiting renovation. The painting measures 20" x 16" and is painted in oils. It is based on a photograph taken one cold but sunny morning. In front of the building are some of the extensive collection of water weirs and walkways, controlling the water flow in to the mill. The foreground provides a tonally cool framing device to the morning light hitting the building. I hope to go back to this subject and produce more artwork based on this location.
