"Old Cottage in Halkirk" - watercolour - 16 x 26 cm
Halkirk is the nearest village in my local area. Most of it was created in the 19th Century, around a bridge on the River Thurso. It was laid out on a grid pattern of houses, with individual plots of land. Many of the original houses have been replaced or modernised, but there are still a few old cottages, which make it possible to imagine how the village would have looked originally.
