This painting was suggested by a couple of people and so here it is. It is not too far from my studio here in Kent. I have enjoyed the research and the painting of it, as one is always looking for anew challenge!
Shurland Hall,near Eastchurch in Kent was named after it's first owners the De Shurland family and became the home of the Cheyne family in 1327. There is lots more detail on the web if anyone is interested. One interesting fact is that the family once hosted a visit by Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn.
This painting depicts the manor as it looked in 1904, then still a fine house with extensive grounds.
Since then the Manor House declined and by 2000 was really just a ruin. Recently it has been carefully restored and is once again a home.
The watercolour is painted on Arches rough paper and is 12 inches by 9.
The painting is supplied in a white mount suitable for framing in a 16 by 12 inch frame.
It is supplied with signed certificate of authenticity.
