Beautiful painting by the way.

Absolutely brilliant paintings,they just draw you in and almost feel like you're there..I wish I could paint like that.

A great picture. I do a 'bit' of watercolour stuff myself, but I'm nowhere near as good as you Ray.

JB..I do a bit of oil painting,and keep saying I'll give watercolour a try,but looking at these,I've no chance.

This is looking from the top of Market Street..old toilets used to be on the right where the wall is..Hallgate is first on the left.

Hi Maureen. A few months ago I was searching for local water colour painting classes without success but I have recently discovered there is a class at Haigh Hall. I have been thinking of joining that and wondered if you would be interested.
