Narrow Boat Over King’s College (Christmas Edition) – print
Christmas edition showing narrow boat approaching King’s College Chapel in Cambridge. This is a digitally enhanced watercolour painting (scanned in and processed digitally)
This exquisite art print portrays a fantastical scene of a canal boat floating gracefully and slowly over a snow-covered meadow in Cambridge. The artwork captures a moment of sheer joy and festivity, as the boat glides peacefully and elegantly, without a care in the world.
Despite the absence of the Cam River, the painting captures the true essence of Cambridge’s winter charm, with the boat meandering over the snowy landscape, evoking a sense of wonder and enchantment. It appears that the boat is cruising around the Cambridge University grounds, spreading festive cheer and merriment during the holiday season.
As we gaze upon the painting, we notice people sitting on the boat, donning winter hats, sipping on glasses of champagne, and enjoying a delightful picnic. To the side, a snowman stands tall, adding to the whimsical and dreamlike ambiance of the scene. At the helm of the boat, Santa Claus takes charge as the captain, navigating through the snow-filled meadow.
In the distance, the majestic King’s College Chapel is visible, emitting a warm and inviting glow from its beautifully stained-glass windows. The painting’s blue and violet tones are offset by the warm light emanating from the boat’s windows and the chapel, creating a breathtaking contrast that further adds to the picture’s splendour.
This art print is an ideal Christmas gift for anyone who loves Cambridge or has graduated from the renowned Cambridge University. It captures the essence of the city’s winter wonderland, evoking a sense of joy, festivity, and whimsy that is truly unmatched.
