Tiverton & foxgloves, bamboo pen, watercolour and soft pastel, Arches 300gms watercolour paper rough, 20x14inches, 2017.
Tiverton is the ancient capital of Mid-Devon, where the earls of Devon used to live and wool merchants grew rich and founded almshouses and schools. When the decline of the woollen industry brought the town to its knees John Heathcote, driven from Loughborough by Luddites, brought his lace-making industry to the town and we flourished again. You can see Heathcote’s great factory chimney on the left, the church in the middle and the old castle on the right.
