One to add to my collection of paintings taken from places along the Brecon & Monmouthshire Canal. This one is a view of the 'lock-keepers' cottage and Bridge No.3 at Pensarn, on the Western arm of the canal near the fourteen locks up which the canal climbs a steep hillside. Sadly this section of the canal has been drained for many years, so the water and lock gate are pure imagination.

Nice  O0

I really like the little bit of history you provide with the painting.
I live to draw and paint, it a good thing that I don't have to draw and paint to live!

Very nice!  I really like the house and the trees.  Nice composition.  Great you can remember it as it was.

Your brushes are really flying!  Such a busy girl!   :congrats:   Looks like you're really enjoying yourself.   :yippee:

I'm thinking you should change the line at the bottom of your post from

"th, th, th, that's all folks ;o)"  to  "Hold on, there's more to come"   :2funny: 
"The way to be happy," said Winston Churchill, "is to find something that requires the kind of perfection that's impossible to achieve and spend the rest of your life trying to achieve it."

Very pretty! I love your use of light and shadow. Your paintings are growing richer with all the practice. I am learning by watching the process.
