MISTY MORNING ON THE CANAL AT HALSALL – PASTEL PAINTING

P1020454(1)I parked up in the carpark by the canal ready to go off painting and just took a glimpse along the towpath. Fingers of mist still clung to the reeds, avoiding the sun’s weak rays. Out of the reed beds some moorhens glided across the chill water, probably thinking I might be a source of a free breakfast.

I tried this out in pastel to get the wisps of mist. In hindsight I could have done it in watercolour and used white gouache for the mist.

Other canal side paintings are available on my website grahammcquadefineart.com
