This is an immensely imposing house, with magnificent timbers and ornate brickwork. The garden spreads around the house, with winding paths to take you through glades and woodland. I thought I would start this week with some photos to show those who didn't come what it is like.
Sally P. first looked up, rather daunted, at the main building and then turned and saw this door opening in an outbuilding, which I think has made a wonderful subject.
Diana also looked up at the building, and has taken a photo to show her sketch with its subject.
She also sent a painting from earlier in the week. 'Oil on top of old acrylic collagen thing .I think it’s too big. I might have another go on a smaller canvas.'
By the way, Diana asked me to ask all of you for guidance as to where there are places to visit locally where the public loos are open. Very important, this, as earlier on, when they said we could now travel further afield, none of them were.
'Thursday again! Or rather Jeudi ici en Bretagne...
In the middle of painting some of the insect life I have seen in the garden here and a sketch of Nick’s feet while he was asleep in the shade. I learnt a great deal about his sandals!!!'
