Dry up the Blues!

Narrow Boar in Audlem
Narrow Boat, Audlem

I have been having some fun with blue and red ink lately.  Judy of Williams of Audlem has been doing a fine job of retailing the limited edition prints of the Audlem street scene so when asked about a tea towel design, I took it as an opportunity to play!

I like tea towels to have fresh cheery colours, so picked up my inks and sketched some of the local landmarks and features. Audlem has a strong identity linked to the Shropshire Union Canal flowing alongside the village and there is plenty of subject material – enough perhaps for a second tea towel next year!

Here are the images which appear on the tea towel, now on sale through Williams of Audlem. They make a practical gift as well as being easy to post overseas.

More Audlem drawings in my next post – Christmas cards!
