MORNING ON THE CANAL AT HASKAYNE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1150056(1)

Another canal scene and in a place I’ve painted before on the Leeds to Liverpool Canal. The light coming in from over the fields and catching surfaces on the boats and vegetation caught my eye. To evoke the morning stillness I tried to reduce the range of colours, so that there was a calmness of hue.

  1. I really enjoy looking at your art Graham, thank you for sharing not only the art but also the little stories about the work or its creation.
    If you like the subject of canals and boats you should consider coming down to Stourport-on-Severn to inspire your talents. Originally created from two small villages (upper and Lower Mitton) Stourport became a very important terminus for the Staffordshire and Worcestershire Canal. The canal joins the river Severn and there is also a large canal basin, lots of locks, a dry dock to repair boats and restored Georgian buildings.

  2. Thank you Kevin for your kind remarks I appreciate them. Stourport sounds interesting. Some friends took us to the canal near Gloucester, that’s probably as near as I’ve got. Still, one day ,,,
