Willy Lotts Cottage 1. 12x17, Oils on Board.
This is the second time I have painted this subject. I love it so much. The first time I painted it, I did post it, and told the story behind it, But I will briefly tell again. As Constable Fans know only too well that Willy Lott was a close friend of Constable, and he was an Artist as well. he gave Constable lessons in his early days as an Artist. This cottage was Willy Lotts Home, which was in the grounds of Golding Constable`s Mill. Golding was Constables Father. That little window facing the water is where I stayed for a week on a painting course. It was a brilliant tme for me, and holds good memories. They still hold courses there, and I would recommend a week there to anybody.
