Boats & Trains II

I thought I’d open this second post on paintings of canals (& occasionally trains) with the image below, as it captured for me the ‘feel’ of being outdoors painting…

A series of three paintings by Michele Field, this one’s called ‘Summer’s day at Hillmorton’
‘Snipe & Taurus on the Oxford Canal’ by Michele Field
‘Homeward Bound, Napton-on-the-Hill’ by Michele Field
‘Chesterfield Canal’ by Mary Jane
This painting ‘Marina 1’ took me to Rob Pointon’s website  where he records a painterly journey he took around the canal system. It’s well worth a quick look…
