Hard Rope and Silken Twine

Hard Rope and Silken Twine
Watercolour.
38 cm x 38 cm or 15 inches x 15 inches

Every now and then we go to a marvelous place called McSalvors. It is a sort of huge army and navy store crossed with a chandlers mixed up with an ironmongers with a bit of builders merchant. Put simply you can find a lot of really useful things there and a huge amount of things that you didn't know you needed until you saw them there! Anyway it is all piled up on metal shelves or stacked up on the floor and for someone like me, who has a bit of a "thing" for string and rope, it is heaven.
So here we have rope and lovely labels scrawled with an iron-mongery script. The title is of course a reference to my most favorite band ever. Wonder if anyone knows who they are...

I really like this. Great use of the color to show the twine/rope.
