A beautiful, impressionist painting by Geoffrey Chatten showing his fantastic, free flowing creative style. It is a wonderful Summer scene with children playing, the 'Southern Belle' pleasure boat and other yachts on the River Waveney. In the foreground there is a crowd waving at the pleasure boat as it passes by bringing a sense of fun and pleasure to this piece. On the far side of the river is the iconic Herringfleet windmill used recently in the Mike Leigh film 'Mr.Turner'. 

It is in a British hand crafted frame  made specifically for this piece.
