You would never believe that this exhibit was made out of former gym climbing ropes...
This life sized rope sculpture was inspired by the story of a young Newfoundland dog named Bouncer. Presented to the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall and York in 1901.
Created by artist Dominic Gubb who studied sculpture in London and has lived and worked in Wales since 1990.....here's some info about him and 'Bouncer' taken from information given by
Arlington Court the National Trust property where this exhibit is currently to be seen.
The carriage in the exhibit is not the one used by the original 'Bouncer',
but shown as an example.

This time Barnstaple Bridge, Devon,
Pen + watercolour
plus I added a small amount of detail with
my Sailor Calligraphy pen
This is a very loose sketch, but again it might make a
painting in its own right.
Out of interest, I thought it would be good to add a note
on colour/tones. The majority of this painting is in cool tones:
i.e. the blue of the boat and yellows, so to 'balance' that out
I added a strip of red to the boat.
If a painting is all cool colours, then balance it with a warm.
Equally, if a painting is all warm colours, balance it with a cool.
