Newnham On Severn Station (near Cinderford Gloucestershire)

The Inspiration:

(freehand and painted in oils)

Commissioned by Mr David Lees who I met at the Jane Powell Art Studio, Kenilworth UK in 2001. As a school boy he used to travel to Double View School in Cinderford, in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, UK. from Newnham on Severn station every morning during 1950.

The village of Newnham is near the Severn estuary.

Happy memories for him.
