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.

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.

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!

Hello Roy.

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.

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!

Sorry I should say if Ron doesn't mind!

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!

Johnny..as far as I'm concerned,it's all a bit of fun..there's enough misery in the world.

Johnny; I agree with Maureen, personally I enjoy your "punsterring'!

Storm in a (china) tea cup! Far worse things happening in the world.

Its obvious a few closet Puritans are living in the "Ancient & Loyal" borough!
