A Great Find!

I’ve been looking for an ‘interior’ subject to paint for a long time now, something like an old barn with lots of interest, but just haven’t come across anything.
Then, last Thursday, Liz & I went to the Blackwell Ox at Carlton-in-Cleveland, a lovely village about 3 miles from Stokesley. We arrived early and had a great time wandering around taking advantage of the beautiful evening light for some photographs.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when we came upon the Forge and I was lucky enough to meet Mr Ward, the local Blacksmith, who kindly let me take some photographs of the interior.

This is the resulting watercolour and although I found it quite a difficult one, I really enjoyed painting it!
