MOVING OFF FROM THE SARACEN’S HEAD – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

My last post – a canal scene – caused troll to ouze out from under its stone and lob another tired jibe at my handiwork. Narrowboats, in their opinion are contemptuous and, so naturally, troll’s self bestowed and illogical concept of good art – whatever that means – was affronted and it needed to act.

The upshot of this latest beef is that: I AM DOING ANOTHER CANAL SCENE. So my advice to troll is to slide further beneath the slab as another similar scene may follow this.

I sold a couple of canal scenes recently so stocks are low. This painting shows the gastro pub – the Saracen’s Head – on the Leeds and Liverpool Canal where, these days, more and more narrowboats seem to moor up. It is just a few yards from my last canal-side painting in my preious blog.

Other paintings of the Leeds Liverpool and other canals are avilable for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. Hi Graham, if you are ever looking for your next canal painting location you might consider, Stourport-on-Severn. A very interesting little town that grew up in Georgian England with the arrival of the canals and became the busiest inland port in the Midlands . Stourport not only has several large canal basins it also runs in to the river Severn.

    There are of course traditional long boats, as well a good number of cabin cruisers, not to mention a large number of locks, some of which are the biggest in the country. https://stourporttown.co.uk/
