Collection of Nick S., Dorset.
This beautiful derelict old barn was part of the Prideaux Estate - and last used by a local farmer (my next door neighbour at the time Reg Thomas) to keep hens in. The painting was done after a drawing with which I had hoped to persuade North Cornwall District Council to allow me to use the derelict barn as a studio converted with extreme sympathy. Permission was denied and the barn then bulldozed as it was considered to be unsafe!
