"The artist...is also a born adventurer. His explorations, unlike those of a tourist, are rewarded by the discovery of beauty spots unmentioned in the guide books, and with tireless curiosity and an exceptional proneness to wonderment, he will come upon objects of remarkable interest overlooked or even shunned by more disciplined observers."

Hello Stuart. I've just had a look through your blog. I particularly like the line-and-wash sketches of birds - very reminiscent of Tunnicliffe I thought.

Hello Keith, thanks for the comment. Your last post of the painting of the flagstone wall was interesting as we have a few similar walls around here. Although not as many as the more usual drystone walls and they have mostly fallen into disrepair now. I guess the only difference between ours and yours will be the geology of the rock. Ours are millstone grit.
