I had the pleasure of visiting James and his family at their farms in Hickling this morning. He gave me a great tour of his farm and marshes. His farm of over 500 acres is mixed arable, chickens and some cattle. James contacted me after seeing me on Look East where I mentioned about owning a pet cow when I was a young girl. So it was most appropriate that we were accompanied by his young daughter Amy and that today’s drawing is of her pet Simmental “Patches” and her calf which were grazing on the NWT marshes which the farm adjoins.
Tomorrow will be an early start so chinagraph pencils all sharpened ready as I will be hanging my prints ready for the Norwich Print Fair which starts on Monday.
