Washingborough Hall commission

The pavilion in the morning sunshine

Straight into drawing out the Pavilion in permanent pen, so no room for any mistakes!

The fountain, known as ‘The lady in the park’

I posted a painting of a French chateau I painted during a holiday recently and it was seen on Facebook by an owner of Washingborough Hall in Lincolnshire, UK. She asked me if I took commissions and last week I drove 200 miles north, and during a beautifully warm September day, I produced this set of paintings for her. Watercolour and permanent pen on Winsor & Newton 300gsm Grain Fin paper.
