Mural Painted on both sides of a narrow boat, based on the Potteries of Stoke-on-Trent



Mural Painted on both sides of a narrow boat, based on the Potteries of Stoke-on-Trent

I painted this lovely design on the sides of a 65 ft long narrow boat during the summer. The mural artwork was based upon the boat owner's passion for the old potteries of Stoke-on-Trent.
