THE NEW LANE SWING BRIDGE – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

Our walk along the Leeds Liverpool canal the other day took us past the swing bridge near the small town of Burscough. I love the line of old cottages in the left background, and have painted them in the past from the other side. I wondered whether the long lead in of the tow path, delineated by the shadows from the bright winter sun was worth a go, particularly as I wanted a long format painting to test on my new website that I am getting built.

And if nothing else, the sight of a canal painting always ignites the bigoted troll – and it can get cold hiding under a stone at this time of year.

Other canal scenes are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com

  1. Very nice technique on the water, Graham…well, the entire composition is perfect. I truly admire your work and your talent as an artist. I can see the work you put into each painting, the thought and the use of colour, well thought out and planned. That shows talent! Lovely painting and it is very nice that you are chronicling your area in such an artistic manner. All the best to you from sunny Valencia,
    Cheers!
