I went to deliver a painting to a customer just before Christmas only to discover he already had one of my paintings which he bought about ten years ago and I’d forgotten about. He didn’t know the location the picture was about and even I was a bit hazy so I’ve been back to find it. I’m glad I did – here’s a little watercolour of the place. I think it’s actually in Cumbria below Wild Boar Fell, but it feels like the Dales. When I first painted it it was almost derelict and has since been cleaned up, but thankfully not ‘restored’!
