Willy Lotts Cottage. 12x17", oils on board.
This is the second time I have painted this scene. I love the area and can`t wait to get back there again and get painting. I have explained Willy Lotts Cottage before, but will do so again. Willy was a great Artist friend of John Constable. He gave Constable lessons in and around this Area. Willy lived in this Cottage and that is where it gets it`s name from. I also stayed in the Cottage for a week when I went there on a weeks painting course. Also I have stayed in Constables Fathers Mill. This Mill and the cottage now belongs to the National Trust and they use it to give lessons on not only Art, but most everything else. It`s a great place to stay.
