Anthea Craigmyle is a very special artist. She trained at the Chelsea School of Art under the guidance of distinguished artists such as Julian Trevelyan and Ceri Richards. In the early part of her career, Anthea developed a style that reflected her childhood experiences of the war and her paintings frequently portrayed a sombre mood.
In the seventies, though, Anthea made a conscious decision to change her approach. Her more recent experiences were much more positive and her pictures began to reflect her love of life and her enthusiasm for other people.
‘Mending the Small Green Boat’ is typical of her style: a group of men, with an air of industriousness and benevolence, working on a boat set against a Scottish seaside background.
Anthea makes frequent visits to Scotland but now lives and paints at her home alongside the Thames at Chiswick. She has a growing number of followers and her work has been described as ‘the next big thing’ in the fashionable world of limited edition prints.
Our reproduction of the painting is restricted to a limited edition of just 250 prints, signed and numbered by the artist. Each print is produced by the giclee process, using light-fast inks on heavy-weight Somerset Velvet paper.
