Tickhill in South Yorkshire is located south of Doncaster and is one of a couple of pretty, small towns in the area. As a resident, I spend a lot of time walking around the village and enjoying the atmosphere.
This painting is one of a series of the town and is a winter scene depicting the Parish Rooms, which were recently renovated. I used quite a bit of artistic licence in the painting, notably on the road, which had actually been cleared of snow when I photographed it. As this left a large grey area I decided to add interest buy creating the reflections in the newly-melted snow. Oscar, my favourite dog, also makes another appearance, here seen taking his owner for a walk.
