watercolor of barn at peckover houseThis thatched Cambridgeshire brick barn is in the grounds of Pekover House, once the home of Octavia Hill, a Victorian philanthropist who with others founded the UK's National Trust.

The National Trust does a superb job of conserving some of the most interesting historic buildings and landscapes in the UK.

I painted this while we had a coffee and some food - a commont scenario for me to paint I must admit. There were people in the scene but I wanted to focus on the building. The perspective on a few features is not quite right but, hey, sometimes that happens!
