Another view of the hamlet featuring, as well as the church, an engaging, static, hawk model. The model is mounted on a post overlooking the fields and facing Scorborough Hall. Intriguing to know more about it. This view gives an impression of the possible association twixt church and landowner. I must investigate this a little more as it would be interesting from the local history area. For me, the hawk is a lovely, quirky yet possibly functional addition. As the nearby road serves only some local farms the only people we saw were a couple of walkers as we were finishing the sketch. The day turned out to be productive as earlier I had painted in Burton Bushes - a painting that I found challenging. Okay, guess that is it for now, so see you next time. H A P P Y P A I N T I N G
