Down by the River

Let’s have a trip down the river and a couple of examples of steam/paddle boats.  The featured artwork is The Blackpool Queen created for a mobile display  in 1982,  just look at the reflections in the water!   SHOTS34 139





Both of these were created by Alan Cockcroft but in different mediums.  The Blackpool Queen is painted but unusually our other piece Mississippi Magic (1975) is made by cleverly layering coloured paper onto the board to make the image.  They are both fabulous in their own way.
