Magdalen Tower, Oxford


Here is another watercolour, this time showing a well-known scene in Oxford: the tower of Magdalen College. It's a lovely spot, especially on May Morning, when the college choiresters sing from the top of the tower at dawn. One year I might actually get out of bed in time to hear them!

I think college and university campuses are just heavenly! So large spread out --usually quiet!

This particular college really can be heavenly...it even has its own deer park. This time of year its gardens are lovely too, especially the snake's head fritillaries. Which gives me an idea for something to paint next...
