the original

Blofield by John Middleton. What an inspiration!
Unfortunately I don't know the original size.

After John Middleton

By way of exercise I tried to "copy" this watercolour by John Middleton called Blofield. It is one of my favourites by this great british painter. Unfortunately very little can be found about him and it seems that no book was made. His subjects are very traditional but he is an absolute master in watercolour.
