This is a relatively late (c. 2000) full size watercolour of the rocks at the apex of the bend of the Lune at the Crook o’Lune near Caton, viewed lookng upstream. Although quite late, Terry had long wanted to do a watercolour of this scene (I believe there was an earlier oil painting – but I may be wrong), but struggled to find a water level that was exactly what he wanted. I’ve been unable to inspect the back of the picture for a name but in discussions my father always referred to it as “The Rocks”.
Like in so many of his watercolours, the trees are wearing their autumn colours.

This watercolour was painted specially as a gift for Terry’s daughter-in-law on her 18th birthday and depicts Artlebeck Bridge on the boundary between Caton and Brookhouse in Lancashire. It was never exhibited, nor hung in Terry’s studio so it has never been seen in public before.
I’ll grab some measurements and straighten the image when I can.

The vast majority of Terry’s work was intended for sale – an artist has to eat and he took great pleasure in having his work appreciated by others. Occasionally he would conspire to hang on to a picture – without of course admitting that was what he was doing. This oil is one of those and a paiting I therefore grew up with. It is a very rare example of an oil of the Lake District. Most of his paintings of the Lakes are watercolours and some pastels.
PS Apologies for the delay in adding more pictures. As some of you know I was touring Laos. I’m now back online. I don’t have photo editing software at present so I’ll go back over the next batch of photos again sometime soon! I’ll also try to retake the photo which doesn’t have light bloom.
