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 restorations 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.

This painting, oil on panel, was inspired while out walking at Monsal Dale which lies near Bakewell in Derbyshire. One of the most popular beauty spots in the Peak District, with absolutely fabulous dales scenery. As the title of the painting ‘The River Wye’ suggests, the walk took me much of the way along the banks of the river. I couldn’t resist this view along the valley which to me epitomises our beautiful English countryside.
