After some quite aggressive dental work earlier in the week, I have felt the need to take things a little slower and, at the same time, halt my consumption of nuts. Fortunately with painting, I have something to productively engage me in the meantime, something that isnt too physically demanding. With a couple of exhibitions looming, including one which monitors your previous entries and prohibits any returning, I thought I’d get myself a new selection of local topics. This is one of them – a venue I’ve painted before.
I did like the old wharf buildings before they were renovated, but I suppose without some renovation things would go into terminal decline. So I have excluded the more radical changes and focussed on the the less altered part of these old buildings. I also misted out the canal-side houses in the distance in this morning scene.
Other canals and narrowboat paintings are available for sale on my website: grahammcquadefineart.com
