THE ESK VALLEY (NORTH  YORKS) WALL OF PAINTINGS

It was here in the North Yorkshire Moors that I became a professional watercolorist. I loved painting farms, farmers, their dogs and sheep and spent many hours working there. I was well known by the farmers and their wives who often knew where I had been before..on another family or friends farm.

              The fascinating farm buildings with their variety of shapes are a gift setting for paintings of farm life crowned by their pantile roofs which added such warmth!  

              As well as all this I started demonstrating watercolours. It became part of my life.
