Images taken at Banbury Canal Day 2014. The first being this lovely amateur Can, exquisite care and attention have gone into every detail, and the end result is a credit to the painter who must have spent hours on the piece.

These back cabin doors show a different take on the traditional castle and lake scene. The end result may perhaps be a little too Harry Potter or Hobbit-esque for purists but it’s nonetheless a really confident piece of amateur painting, on a large scale.


Whilst I’m not a particular fan of the lettering used here, and perhaps the two elements the bold ‘Oxford’ and the fine roses don’t necessarily compliment each other, but, all that said, the pastel-tinted roses are confidently achieved and that’s ¬†an interesting dot-effect on the leaves…


An example of what might be called ‘modern-trad’ to finish with. Is this a professional piece? The roses and daisies certainly have the certain slick flourish of a professional painter…
