Gathered around Pots demonstrates Farndon’s fusion of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist techniques; from the former he adopted a love for working en plein air with fluid brushwork while the latter influence is revealed in his daring color palette. The figures and wharf buildings are rendered with the artist’s characteristic impasto, instilling vitality to an everyday scene.
