Inspired by the beauty of the UK’s vast network of inland waterways, highly acclaimed artist Rob Pointon embarked on a year long painting project touring the canal network on a narrowboat.

All of Rob’s work is done on location which brings an energy and vibrancy to the atmosphere of the paintings, truly reflecting the experience and the scene being depicted.

The result of this project is a collection of 80 paintings to be exhibited for sale at four major locations starting in April 2013. A percentage of the proceeds of these sales is being donated to The Canal & River Trust.
