The next two paintings are in fact pen and wash, my favourite medium. Both are of Leigh the second features a motorised Leigh Bawley. The Bawley was a sailing vessel famous for its large loose footed mainsail. The original sketches were done in the mid 1970's http://s20.postimg.org/uh6efsjwt/IMG_073...

Thanks for the information Paul.
I think the price is a bit off putting as I would only use the cab and bonnet.

I am being side-tracked at the moment, working on a small GWR shunting layout in OO scale. I like to ring the changes with my modelling interests.

A few pictures I took of Two Sister's at the exhibition in Stow on the Wold. It is a fabulous venue in a charming Cotswold town. The show was very well attended by a record crowd, despite the glorious weather outside. https://farm1.staticflickr.com/797/27772561848_4eb9584ea3_z.jpg https://farm1.stat...
