James Merriott continues his watercolour tour of the county with a visit to location close to home and close to his heart
I love the opportunity to explore every aspect of the county and during my time of sharing these watercolour compilations with the readers of Essex Life I have visited and painted close to 100 Essex destinations.
This month, while I didn't have to put too many miles on the clock to visit the subject of this feature, it was a particular special place for me and there was still so much to enjoy.
You see, Herongate is just a short drive from where I live and is a location I am very familiar with and yet still love to celebrate.
There is so much I love about my neighbouring village of Herongate, so much so that I exceeded my usual portrayal of six watercolours for this feature.
I'm hoping that the magazine's editorial designer will find room to reproduce them all, and so this month I will limit my words and let the paintings do the talking.
