Benham Weir

BenhamWeir500 Wheels at the weir

Two of us went out looking for somewhere to paint by the Kennet and Avon Canal on Saturday.  Attracted by the mysterious shapes and machinery of Benham weir, we found a spot to perch our easels on the edge of a concrete plinth above swirling waters.

Faces of barge crews looked curiously in our direction as they glided by beyond the towpath above our heads.

Perhaps, like me, they were intrigued by our different takes on almost the same view.

Both of us were working with painting knives in oil.
