This Lock keepers cottage is at flatford Mill. It was Originally Golding Gonstable`s Mill, John Comstables Father. It was built long after Constable`s time. It`s a fantastic spot to paint. I have been there a few times When I lived in Colchester, and since then also. I use`to call there when I was a Mechanic on breakdowns. I loved this part of the Country, and still do.

On the way back from painting another subject at chipstead, I took a photo of this subject and painted this from it. They are probably going for lunch, I saw them go into the Tigers Head.

This subject was about 50yards away from where we were painting at Chipstead Wednesday before last. Apart from the figure I painted it from a photo that I took on the day. I added the figure because I thought it really needed it. Is the figure going to make a phone call? He has been taking photo`s because he has a camera in his hand.

I painted this at a Village called Chipstead. I added the figure in my studio. It was a ghreat day.As Harry and I were about to cross over a footbridge, Three teachers were crossing with roughly 12 Children, you can see the backs of half of them, the others were further up trying to get past that car, it was a very narrow road, more like a path. Anyway, we managed to cross over the footbridge, two of them actually. we sorted out a subject each and when I had completed about half of the painting, the teachers and the children came back. It was amazing really. They all gathered around and they were looking at Harry`s drawing and my painting, looking so innocent and lovely, they all looked around the age of 3to4 yrs old. I asked the teachers if i could take a photo of them all, but she said that they were not allowed for that to happen. So I said could I take it from behind them, and she said I won`t see you take it will I? So that was it.
