This is the beautifully rural Llangollen Canal, near Llangollen, Wales.  As you can see from the wake, I took the reference photos for this painting looking back over the stern of our little narrowboat.   To be ridiculously specific, this Bridge 36W looking back towards Trevor Basin on the last leg of our journey to Llangollen itself.  Its idyllic up there.
