'Seen Better Days'

  I don't know what it is about old wrecks like this, but they make irresistible subjects for many artists and I'm no different. 
  What makes it interesting for me personally, is the light and shade effect and the way that the light is visible through the cracks in the hull.
  This rests by the Exeter Canal, just along by the Turf Locks hotel. We ended up here after a long walk from the relatively busy city, along the canal path, to the very peaceful spot here.
  I chose a very limited palette to keep the colours subtle.
