Sandon Lock and Bridge from the Towpath.

The low early morning winter sun was directly behind me, which cast some fabulous shafts of light onto the crumbling rustic orange brickwork, and particularly through the arch of the bridge, reflecting into the water.

It’s looking promising with most of the basic colours in place. It will be completed in the studio at some point, I’m working on three projects at present so juggling my time between them.
