This Watercolour Landscape Painting depicts a scene not

far from the school at which I work. We sometimes take 

Art students to Tinsley Canal to Draw and Paint Water 

Studies and to take Photographs.


The fisherman was Fishing for Carp which grow quite large 

and are a very common fish in the area. He was using hemp 

seed and bread for bait.


I had the French Impressionist Claude Monet in mind when 

Painting this Watercolour and would like to paint a larger version 

in oils one day.


This calm scene on the outskirts of the City of Sheffield belies

the fact that a busy motorway and major centre of industry are 

just behind the viewer.
