SUMMER DAYS ON THE CANAL – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

A confection of motifs, some of which I have painted before, to try and evoke long languid days on the Leeds Liverpool Canal , or any other canal come to that. With a barely perceptible flow, canals create, in me, a calmness that befits a hot summer’s day.

I started with reds greens and yellows; colours of the summer, washing them across the sheet and then added vignettes of animal and human activity – or lack of it – in an effort to fill the space.

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