Brecon Cathedral

The above watercolour is of Brecon Cathedral from the Struet. I haven't done any serious watercolours for a while. Maybe I will get back to them. I remember the Cathedral fondly as I was the first artist to be asked to hold an exhibition in the Cathedral itself. We even sat there whilst services were on going, fortunately Jac was well behaved! We were always welcomed by the Dean and were treated to dinner at the Deanery.

One of my toughest commissions was being asked to do a commission of a choirmaster conducting the choir there. It was a surprise so he couldn't see me and it had to be done there and then on the day.

We haven't exhibited in Brecon now for several years.
