ORIGINAL ART OFFERED FOR SALE IN AID OF WINDOWS APPEAL

Posted by Admin on Thursday, 23rd October 2008, 00:00

Local artist HEATHER COBB, who created the illustrations for T. C. Hudson’s booklet The Hounds of Cridmore and other Isle of Wight Poems has kindly offered some of the original ink drawings used to illustrate poems in the booklet to be sold in aid of the Northwood Church Windows Appeal.

The drawings have all been beautifully mounted in black wooden frames measuring approximately 31½cm x 25cm with the light grey mounting card apertures measuring approximately 19cm x 13cm. They are all glass-fronted except for one which has had its glass broken and removed.

THESE ARE ALL ORIGINAL DRAWINGS – NOT PRINTS.

I will gladly include a copy of the booklet, for which these drawings were created, with every purchase.

Below are small images of the drawings being offered:


The Falcon – illustrating the poem First Commodore.


View from Northwood – illustrating the poem Medina Basin.


Portrait of Harry Pritchett – illustrating the poem Northwood Brickyard Revisited.


The Duver – illustrating the poem Sacred Seamark.
Unfortunately the glass in this item has been broken and removed.


Ashey Seamark – illustrating the poem Sketching On Ashey Down.


View from Northwood – illustrating the poem Sunset Over Parkhurst Forest.


Portrait of Seaman – illustrating the poem Topsail Schooner.

If anyone thinks they may be interested in purchasing one or more of these drawings in aid of the Windows Appeal, could they please contact me on 01983 523818 or email nneditor@northwoodvillage.org.uk or visit the website for more details.

Thank you!
