Historic working boat Mountbatten, and butty Jellicoe. Mountbatten and Jellicoe are run by the Chamberlain Carrying Co., delivering fuel to boats on the Llangollen and Shropshire Union Canals. Drawn from my photo. Graphite on A3 cartridge paper.
Wonderful exposed tree roots next to the towpath on the Shropshire Union Canal at Tyreley Locks. I drew this on A3 paper. It took several weeks as I worked on it between commissions.
During the summer, many lock gates have a variety of vegetation growing on them. I found this an interesting subject to draw with the contrast between the foliage and the wood and metal of the gate. I drew this on A5 cartridge paper.
