This Beautiful Summer

Wonderful weather to be out and about sketching this summer of 2018.

Friends introduced me to the area around Grosmont with its beautiful woodland, high places looking over steep valleys and sleepy ravines where the Murk Esk runs over water splashes and into quiet tree-surrounded lagoons. So, several days spent in high summer, all of us enjoying days out sketching, with no rain or high winds to interrupt the work, followed by refreshments at the local friendly cafes. There's more to Grosmont than steam trains(although they're a wonderful sight too).

    A Sense of Place, Nunnington Hall

    March 31 is the first day of our exhibition, 'A Sense of Place' for the National Trust at Nunnington Hall, near Helmsley.  It's also an opportunity to meet the four of us, Anne Thornhill, Paul Blackwell, Peter Hicks and me as we will be there from 11.00am to 3.00pm. We have all enjoyed working at some of the most beautiful sites and lovely buildings and hope that we have done justice to some of the Nation's treasured possessions.
