The Refectory, Lincoln Cathedral

Here's the latest painting for my exhibition.




The Refectory, Lincoln Cathedral


Watercolour on watercolour paper, 8 1/4" x 11 3/4"


Two visitors are taking a well earned rest outside the cathedral refectory. It's such a long trudge around those cathedral cloisters!

Really like your watercolours as its a medium I haven't mastered yet. I am trying out all sorts of subjects just now. Hope your exhibition is very successful. Good to see another Brit Blogger.
Will follow yours with interest.

Thanks Carolann
Watercolour is a tricky medium. It can produce some exciting and unexpected results, but it can go spectacularly wrong! Good luck with it.
I've got my fingers crossed (and anything else I can cross!) that the exhibition goes well. The exhibition is on at the same time as the theater's christmas production of "A Christmas Carol", so hopefully the audience will be in a festive and present-buying mood.
I see you're located on the suffolk coast. That is one of my favourite areas. I love places like Southwold, Walberswick and Aldeburgh.

This is a very enjoyable piece with beautiful colors and the lovely softness of the water color. You are very lucky in Britain with all your old buildings. aI like the look of this one. Kay

Thanks Kay.
Yes, we are very fortunate with our building heritage and watercolour is particularly suited to portraying the English climate with its soft misty colours.
