Painting Oldlands Mill

I have not been able to share much on my blog recently because at this time of year I start painting Christmas commissions, which cant be shared for a while!
Here is one that can be shared though, Oldlands Mill at Keymer is the subject of community fundraising and restoration, and it is a real beauty! I am painting it as you can see it on an Open Day.
