Some of the great medieval cathedrals of the south and south west of England - the inspiration for Ken Follett’s ‘The Pillars of the Earth’ (1989). Left to right, top to bottom: Winchester Cathedral exterior, medieval floor tiles inside Winchester Cathedral, Gloucester Cathedral exterior, the cloisters at Gloucester Cathedral, Salisbury Cathedral in the morning mist, the chapter house at Salisbury Cathedral, Wells Cathedral exterior and Wells Cathedral interior.
24 November 2014: Sunset, Heckfield, Hampshire. Went to this beautiful place to paint a sunset and wasn’t disappointed. A low mist descended, which made everything feel so romantic. The downside was that it got really cold - so I was pleased to get back to my car and turn the heater on full! I altered the tree a bit when I got back to the studio - making it more impressionistic to fit in with the rest of the painting.
