A pictorial alphabet of favourite places around England – M for Macclesfield Canal (1)
A pictorial alphabet of favourite places I've sketched and painted around England
While some letters of the alphabet are difficult to illustrate from my travels, M is a cinch, as this painting alone combines three Ms – “The Macclesfield Canal near Middlecale Farm, Middlewood”. The Macclesfield Canal runs through Higher Poynton and is a natural place for me to go for sketching or painting trips, especially as it has a car park, outdoor snack cabin and loo block! As it is a regular haunt on my local patch there are more pictures from here, as with Higher Poynton, and later Prince’s Wood. The part I walk, sketch and paint is from Adlington, 3 miles to the South, to High Lane,, 2 miles to the North, and has extensive views across farmland to Lyme Park to the East, and over Poynton to Alderley Edge to the West.
