Elsdon

I spent a morning here at Elsdon in Northumberland, in July, painting this scene in watercolour, seated on the village green. It shows a fortified Pele House, typical of the area which through the 13th to 18th centuries experienced continual attacks from across the Scottish Border. To be fair to the Scots, we Northumbrians did our share of cross border raids, also.
During the painting session, I experienced a different sort of attack by local gnats and midges, grabbing my easel and equipment and running for the sanctuary of my car, at lunch time!
