Last night we walked along the River Cam just to the north of Cambridge to watch the May Bumps. For those of you not familiar with this annual Cambridge river ritual, these are kind of tag boat races. On the other side of town the river flows out through Granchester Meadows, and this was the inspiration for a large sketch from memory of all the things I'd seen on a hot Sunday afternoon punting on the river. This print is based on part of the sketch - ducks among the water-lilies.
