Derelict Cottage, near Boarhills

Derelict Cottage  near Boarhills by Jem Bowden.
Jem Bowden’s watercolour painting captures the essence of the derelict fisherman’s cottage at Boarhills beach. With skilled brushstrokes, Bowden depicts the worn and weathered structure, once bustling with potato exports during the 19th century. The cottage stands prominently against a backdrop of rolling green farmland, its walls telling stories of a bygone era. In the foreground, a pristine expanse of white sands stretches out, forming a natural boundary between the cottage and the sea. The contrast between the sandy beach and the lush greenery adds depth to the composition, evoking a sense of tranquility and nostalgia. Bowden’s careful attention to detail and mastery of watercolour techniques bring this historic scene to life on the canvas.
