I have a couple of watercolour demos to do at the end of the month. In fact they are on consecutive days which is a bit awkward – I need to get that secretary replaced. The first one wanted a canal scene so I have been looking through my images to find something suitable to do. I did this yesterday morning, so with a bit of preparation, like getting my paints ready and having everything to hand, I should be able to do in the allotted hour and a half.

This is a scene I have posted before, both as an on-site sketch and as a more finished painting. The painting never sold and I have made a  few small changes in this version. I am thinking of getting down to the canal and starting to build up a series of canal paintings as they were popular and its always a nice place to sit and paint.

Other canal scenes are available for sale on my website: 


    • Thanks Eduardo, to get a range of water in reflection and some that only reflected the sky, I had to push the narrowboats and bridge back which meant all the action was in the middle/far distance. I added the figure to have something coming forward. In fact I might bring him further forward for the demo, rather than have him creep up and ambush the viewer.
