BREAKFAST ON THE CANAL – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1030206(1)a

I am working on a couple of projects at the moment. One is a set of paintings based around the Leeds Liverpool Canal which meanders across the countryside close to me. I went out the other week and  posted a painting I did on the spot. This is a view of a couple of the narrowboats I posted then, but viewed from a different angle where I spotted a couple of the owners having an early morning cuppa in the sun. It seemed a good subject to start off the series.

THE CANAL AT LATHOM – WATERCOLOUR PAINTING

P1070560(1)

Exhibitions are coming thick and fast and my framer said he would take some paintings  to put in his window. Canals are quite a popular theme with the Leeds Liverpool canal running along close-by. I was a bit short of suitable paintings and had this image. I like the narrowboats  against the backdrop of the old mill.  I did a similar theme a long while ago where I got up close to the narrowboats, again with the mill in the background and the trees giving deep shade to counterpoint the lit surfaces. It was a favourite painting and sold quickly. This view pulls back a bit, but I thought that it would still make a great subject. Anyway it is in a frame now along with eight others. Now I need to focus on the next exhibition. Thankfully they only want two.

The other  canal painting is in the sold section of paintings on the artist page of my website: grahammcquadefineart.com
