Cholesbury Common Original Painting
Cholesbury Common Buckinghamshire
On the Hawridge/Cholesbury border the extensive commonland is a haven for dog-walkers, horse-riders, and runners alike. The fabulous pub The Full Moon is in the background. One of my favourite cross country runs when I lived in Berkhamsted was up to this common and back. Cholesbury windmill which is also known as Hawridge Windmill is a disused tower mill. The mill was constructed on the site of an earlier smock mill and became a private residence in 1913 when the first occupier, the writer Gilbert Cannan used it as a studio. There is a fine painting of him by Mark Gertler in the Ashmolean, Oxford showing him outside it with his large dogs one of which was the inspiration for "Nana" in Peter Pan as it used to belong to J M Barrie
I now offer the original artwork for sale direct from my studio in Tring, Herts. The originals are hand-painted painted using water-based Winsor & Newton professional gouache paint on Arboreta E.S. white drawing cartridge paper 160g/m2
