Thank you again for a really good photo. I have such happy memories of travelling along this canal. We met such friendly people & saw some good sights.

A promise of the lazy hazy days of summer!


Comment by Johnny on 15th May 2016 at 10:06
Great pic Ron!
That water is so inviting...maybe 50 years ago! :O)

A beautful photo Ron, the blue skies lift one's spirits. It reminds me of a jigsaw I had when a child.

Thank you.


Comment by Roy on 15th May 2016 at 10:56
Maureen, Ron was there, lol !!
Nice shot Ron.


Comment by Johnny on 15th May 2016 at 11:08
Maureen
When the weather is fine again...take your sketch pad here. I'm sure you could turn this scene into a fine acrylic! I may wander over here meself one day!


Comment by Maureen. on 15th May 2016 at 11:15
Hello Roy.


Comment by Maureen on 15th May 2016 at 12:23
Johnny..I'm half way through a Scottish scene,with highland cattle..it seems like my oil paints have been relegated to the bottom of the draw now.


Comment by Vb on 15th May 2016 at 13:19
Maureen/Johnny it's easier doing a sketch of the photo and just making notes of the paint colours......say cerulean blue for the sky with a hint of mixed grey with alizarine ...sure you both know that though!


Comment by Vb on 15th May 2016 at 13:30
Sorry I should say if Ron doesn't mind!


Comment by Johnny on 15th May 2016 at 19:51
Vb
I often sketch and make colour notes. Also photograph the subject. I have never painted insitu...too much mess setting up and the weather may turn:O( Thanks for your interest.
Footnote: I hope my risque comments are not too offensive!


Comment by Maureen on 15th May 2016 at 20:39
Johnny..as far as I'm concerned,it's all a bit of fun..there's enough misery in the world.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 15th May 2016 at 21:56
Lovely shot Ron!


Comment by Ellen on 16th May 2016 at 00:01
Johnny; I agree with Maureen, personally I enjoy your "punsterring'!


Comment by Vb on 16th May 2016 at 00:41
Storm in a (china) tea cup! Far worse things happening in the world.


Comment by Johnny on 16th May 2016 at 07:16
Thankyou Maureen & Ellen
Its obvious a few closet Puritans are living in the "Ancient & Loyal" borough!
Now wheres those Cavaliers with their trusty swords!


Comment by Ellen on 16th May 2016 at 20:57
Johnny; I always did favour those Cavaliers...They had much nicer clothes!
