Blog Post No 66. Many years since we last visited this attractive town, but this was always a ‘ must see ‘ view of the river and viaduct. For me it was always a bonus to see a train passing over it, to or from the station situate in a cutting on the right.

This was painted in my ‘ watercolour period ‘ probably in the 1990,s. It was a quiet day in town when I took this photo. I have done other paintings of this scene from different locations, usually with rowing boats out on the river.

I am aware that I complete fairly complicated paintings of a variety of subjects, but still surprised at the amount of detail when I found this image in a recent trawl of old images.

The comments I made in Blog Post No 65 regarding colour apply equally to this painting. But also like the other it gives a flavour of the essence of the place.
