  1. Hi Paul. I have studied this latest series with interest and delight. I have learned a lot about Cotman and been impressed by his wide variety of styles, less so by his variety of subjects!
    I also really liked the previous series on Jim Flora - what an original talent. His influence is still seen everywhere today. I watched a children's cartoon on TV this afternoon and he kept coming to mind!
    Thank you so much for posting!
