Bolton Abbey

10 Bolton Abbey
Bolton Abbey is to the north of Leeds, past Ilkley on the way to Skipton.

It is an ideal place to go with a flask of coffee and some sandwiches for there lots of places which it is a pleasure to meander through.

This particular view is from the garden of a tea shop at the edge of the village.
Which is itself beside a wonderful second hand bookshop!!!


Availability of Paintings

I do my paintings using Brushes App.
They are done on my iPad.
That means the original image is on a computer rather than on paper or canvas.

I print them off on a good quality printer to good quality paper (or canvas).
I then have them mounted and framed and hang them on my wall.

I have chosen, almost from the beginning, to display them on the web as photos
of the paintings. To put the computer image up would be tantamount to giving my
art away and that does not seem right somehow.

I could sell framed copies (I have sold some) but to be honest I have no
motivation to put in the effort and energy which doing that requires. I would
much rather use that effort and energy in making more paintings.

I have also had requests from people who would like particular paintings on
their own walls and I have invariably allowed them to use the computer image to
print them off.

So, pondering all that, I have decided that the way forward will beΒ  –

1. I will continue to display on the web using photos of paintings.

2. If you would like a copy for your wall then email me and I will send you a
computer image.

3. If you do print it off and hang it on your wall then I ask two things –

A. You take a photo and email it to me.
That would be nice for me.


B. You make a donation to a charity of your choice.
I have no desire to know the amount (none of my business)
But it would be nice to know which charity.

So that is the deal

  1. Ah. Bolton Abbey! One of my very favourite places going back many years into my childhood from family trips to school trips! And you have done a great job with this painting!

    Was this inspired by your trip out with Lorraine? She took some really good photos which she put on facebook. And the tea shop is a delight.

    Love you loads



    • Thank you Christine,

      Yes it was inspired by my trip out with Lorraine.

      But we didn’t eat in the tea shop – too expensive – we brought our own flasks of coffee and some sandwiches πŸ™‚


  2. Yes I remember you telling me that. Theres something exciting about sandwiches and flasks on a day out. πŸ™‚ xxx
