The Bristol Art Prize is an art competition currently running in the city. Artist entrants are being allocated parts of the city to paint and present for selection in an exhibition to be held in the old court buildings; the Guildhall.

Working in the old city in the centre I was intrigued to find what landmark I had been allocated to paint…

I was introduced to a part of Bristol’s old port where the city centre’s floating harbour meets the Cumberland basin at the river Avon: Junction Lock.

This, my first landscape for a while, and more in the style of an abbreviated oil sketch is “Through Junction Lock”.
