Something a bit different from me today, I’ve been thinking a lot about how lucky I am to have lived all over the country. I’ve seen a lot of beautiful landscapes, visited some lovely towns and villages and seen some very interesting buildings which is good because I love architecture, and although buildings are a challenge to paint it doesn’t stop me thinking about painting them.
I wanted to see Scotney castle for a long time, as I had painted it from books, we had a long day out to get there but it was well worth the drive
Little Moreton Hall.
I have visited Little Moreton Hall so many times but I never tire of this amazing building. I have painted it on porcelain using penwork and washes.
Arlington Row, Bibury.
Arlington Row was another place on my ‘places to see’ list, William Morris was impressed by these lovely little cottages apparently.
Bridge House, Ambleside.
Bridge House is so charming, but it’s hard to imagine this wasn’t just built just as a tourist attraction.
Bodiham is such an impressive castle, I love the symmetry, and the reflections.
Which one is your favourite? Or is there another building that you love somewhere?
Have a good Friday , and why not pop over to Love made My Home have a read of some other 5’s on Friday
