Berkhamsted Canal


Berkhamsted Canal, circa 1999. Black ink on cartridge paper, 15 cm x 22 cm.

While I was living in Berkhamsted one of my weekend treats was a stroll along the canal and a visit to either The Boat or Rising Sun pubs (or both). This drawing was based on a photograph I took after the wind and rain had blown numerous leaves on to the towpath.

There’s a hint of the classic illustrators, Ernest H. Shepherd (Winnie the Pooh), John Tenniel (Alice in Wonderland) and The Wind in the Willows in this pen and ink drawing.
