Merchant's on Sea

Merchant's on Sea

Print: £30.00

Merchant's-on-Sea is one of a number of watercolours of local pubs in Rugby. The Merchant's Inn is a well established popular watering hole for many of the local punters and it has a reputation for a crowd-pleasing range of ales. It's clientele are inclined towards the oval rather than round ball which isn't a bad thing. The Merchant's is well known for its beer festivals and by way of promoting these it has a reputation for changing its facade and interior decor to match the theme of each festival from cow or zebra hide to dangling apples from the rafters and bales of hay around the bar. Merchant's-on-Sea takes its inspiration from the seaside theme that the Merchant's adopted for a previous festival when the lower half of the building was painted with beach huts and sea and sand. This inspired me to push it to the next level with a hippie, surfer and marooned pirate take. It's given me lots of ideas to create more fantastical pub themes that portray the character and individuality of each pub. I really love this one! It represents the start of a new fantastical pub series.
