Canvas Print Brentford Lock
Exploring Brentford Lock by kayak. The former dock was redeveloped during the 1970’s as a marina and housing estate and the lock still links the Grand Union Canal and the River Thames.

Brentford Lock was built on an island at the junction of the Grand union Canal, the River Brentford and the River Thames. The former dock was redeveloped during the 1970’s as a marina and housing estate. The lock still links the Grand Union Canal and the River Thames.
As I was exploring the lock in a kayak, the tide was receding and I had to leave so as not to get stuck in the mud.

About the prints
These canvas prints are made by a professional lab using 12 colour UV inks printed onto 100% cotton artists canvas. The museum-quality artist’s stretcher bars, which form the frame of the print, are made using European kiln-dried knotless pine, which is extremely hard wearing and not susceptible to warping like cheaper woods are prone to do. Each bar features a rounded back edge, designed to ensure that the canvas is always kept a full ½” (13mm) above the stretcher bar to ensure that there can be no ghost impressions on the canvas. These stretcher bars also incorporate ‘wedges’ which are placed in each corner and allow the canvas to be stretched extremely tightly over the frame. It also allows the canvas to be restretched at a later date, which is particularly important for the larger size canvas prints.
So this means that these prints will not fade or sag like many cheaper canvas prints often do. If you don’t hang your print in direct sunlight or in a damp place such as a bathroom, it will last for many years.
