An artist friend, Brenda, gave me a photo of Cheddleton Mill to use as a reference for a watercolour painting. It is a lovely, very old mill that has been in use since the Middle Ages. The mill itself is situated on the river Churnet in Leek, Staffordshire and it holds special memories for Brenda and her family.

Here is the finished painting on Arches 1/8th Imperial 140lb cold press watercolour paper.

Arches 1/8th Imperial 140lb cold press watercolour paper.

Since finishing this painting Brenda surprised me by asking to purchase it to give to her sister and brother-in-law as a present along with a print to keep as a momentum!
