Back to a little Pen & ink just to change the tempo for awhile. Midday at Bucks Mills a picturesque village on the North Devon coast in England. This leads down to a stoney beach where in bygone time there used to be a small harbour and limekilns. With a little licence i’ve added a few cow parsley plants to liven things up. The cabin in the middle of the picture is owned by the National Trust and used to be an artist’s retreat. Still used today although not as a residence.
I dedicate this picture to the memory of an old art teacher of mine, ‘James Paterson A.R.C.A. 1916 – 1986. Know to us as Jimmy’ who painted some wonderful watercolours of this village and the surrounding area
