Canal Art, the traditional means of decorating canal boats. This traditional style of art covered everything, from a water can, to the washbasin & even the horses feed tin. Elaborate side roses decorated all over the outside of the boat & its equipment, entwined w/ lettering on the cabin side, on the rudder & even appeared on horse harnesses. This delightful style of British folk art is surviving well and is still giving pleasure; old examples are now treasured and displayed in museums.

Narrowboat paintng, Roses and Castles is the popular name for the traditional paintwork of the narrow boats, bunches of roses and medieval castles are the common features.
