‘ Classic Day Out ‘

Lewtrenchard Manor

‘Classic Day Out’ is  a water colour of Alan Davis, in his cherished MGB Roadster leaving Lewtrenchard Manor. Alan’s daughter, Catherine, commissioned me to do this painting. Alan now retired, has been in the motoring trade for 47 years, 30 of which were at the helm of his own business. He has completed many restoration’s of old MG’s and has been a member of the MG Club for over 40 years. Although I have never met Alan, through this painting I feel that I have got to know him partially. Alan used Lewtrenchard Manor the backdrop to the painting, for  business events as well as personal occasions, the  occasion this time, as the number plate say’s his 70th birthday. What a surprise.

    I have just been presented with this fantastic painting.. The detail and reproduction of Lewtrenchard Manor is very authentic and the finer points of the MGB are very well represented. As you can tell I am thrilled with the painting. It will take pride of place in our lounge. I look forward to meeting you on our next visit to Woore
