Just Looking. 12x17 Oils on Board.
Lovely Oast`s at Cherry Tree farm. Me and a dear Artist friend of mine found this lovely scene on one of our many sketching trips a few years ago. Bill was a lovely man and a brilliant Artist. At the time he worked for the ford motor company. I believe he drew and designed the cars for them. It was always a good feeling when I went with him sketching. He was such a brilliant landscape Artist, and I learnt a lot from him. It was so sad when he died. I went to visit him in Hospital at one time, and I asked the nurse where to find him and she told me, but I had a search for him but I had`to go back to the nurse to ask again. I had already spotted him but he looked so bad that i didn`t recognise him. I will never forget that particular time.
