Braithwell Church and Country Fair

On Saturday I showed my work at an interesting venue in the  pretty village of Braithwell between Doncaster and Rotherham at the annual Church and Country Fair.

St James Church , a small watercolour / gouache
It was just four hours on this Saturday afternoon in June, usually heaving with visitors but the weather played us foul again and there was not the interest of previous years.

I displayed some recent paintings which continued the painting over and around the frame.

"Bluebells in High Melton Woods'
acrylic on board 13"x15"  price £95

'Fishing in the River Don"
acrylic on board 13"x15" price £95

'Marguerites at the Top of My Garden'
13"x15" acrylic on board price £95

These created a lot of interest and favourable comment.

'The Blackbird Also Feeds"
acrylic on board 19"x23" price £350
The above painting of 'The Garden Room Restaurant' was the first time I used this technique. Coincidently that was also in Braithwell at Plants of Special Interest, since renamed 'The Garden Boutique'.
'The Masters House'
small watercolour / gouache SOLD

'The Village Pump'
small watercolour / gouache sold

On the whole it was a good day, I saw some old friends and made some new friends, in particular Diane Harrison, who was showing her collection of landscape photographs. I really liked the ones of the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales, and was also drawn to her portrait photography.  Diane's work can also be seen at

I love the painting over the frame method. It certainly works for the subjects you have chosen
