The Canal, Glasson
Oil on card, 6"x8"
Plein air study.
I decided to go for a walk yesterday morning with my paints. A couple of hundred yards down the canal from the main basin you come to the first bridge. I was attracted to the curve in the canal bank picked up by the shapes of the bridge. The sunlight slanted through creating interesting shadows and enhancing the colour of the autumn trees overhanging the path and the scattered leaves on the ground.
