Cottages In Church Street
The dappled sunlight cast from the trees opposite gave these cottages a lived in feel.
D’Arcy House Entrance
This focal point of a beautiful building desrved to be given priority.
This attractive cottage at the side of the road is an indication of the picturesque houses which can be seen in the village.
Pathway From The Churchyard
The perfect composition for a watercolour - a sunlit footpath from a churchyard in shadow.
The Queen’s Head Inn
The Queen’s Head has the perfect surroundings to make it special. an accompanying cottage, telephone box, post box, the pub sign and not least the backdrop of trees.
St Nicholas’ Church
I chose an unusual angle for this painting with emphasis concentrated on the tower and the porch.
The Weather Vane
Set high from the roadway, the weather vane has superbly crafted timberwork supporting it.
