THE SWING BRIDGE AT LATHOM – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1090887(1)

I  sat by the Leeds Liverpool Canal one sunny morning  the other week and painted the canal by the swing bridge. The on site sketch is below. I thought that the second painting might be better as a wide format image.

On the morning when I came to leave, a narrowboat was coming up to open the bridge. With the wide format  I thought that something on the left hand side might balance up the painting a bit more, so I included this boat

in the painting. It now seems to have taken over as the subject of the painting.
