Vlog 289: Gunwales & Roses

Paintings of roses and castles are about as traditional on the canals of Britain as it’s possible to be – but why? Why roses? And castles? And how do you paint them? I went to see a artist and historian Kay Andrews on her boat as as well as Penny Arscott, Manager of Foxton Locks Museum to find out.

Bonus footage! Watch Kay paint the entire cutting board in real time: https://youtu.be/o-xHQJDoOb0
