Rally Nice

We took a run up to Stourbridge yesterday, specifically, the Stourbridge Arm and the Bonded Warehouse.  We had heard that there was a boat rally of Russell Newbury owners/enthusiasts and that Dave Moore was doing a painting demonstration.  We went to get some inspiration for the livery/colour scheme of the new boat.

 The first boat we saw was the newly painted KYLE, Brian Jarrett's boat.
 I think was probably the first tug that caught my eye all of two years ago at Bugsworth Basin.  The sign painting is work in progress at the moment.
 The Bonded Warehouse.  We couldn't get in to see the warehouse as we were not 'in thee club'.. perhaps we will get to see it in October when there is an open day.
 The heavy industrial style door hinges caught my eye on the boat.
 Two pigeon boxes, one plain at the back and one decorated with roses etc. in the foreground.
 We liked the scumbled framing of the name panels
 Yet another tug to drool over.. - nice bow too
I was quite taken with this as well.....
Have we firmed up our thoughts on a colour scheme...well we thought we had but now..

Love the No 1 Tug scumbled framing - surprised as usually don't like scumbling at all - spent too many hours stripping it of doors and pine dressers!

Almost with you on the GREEN colour scheme too! AARRRRGGGGHHHHH!

I know how you feel Amanda..we thought the livery was all but put to bed and then we start be drawn to colours we haven't even considered - it's back to the drawing board I think.
