Hartland and Alan Cotton

I dropped into the Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) in Exeter yesterday and had a look at the Alan Cotton exhibition. Alan is a Devon based landscape artist who’s paintings are very three dimensional. He has painted landscapes from all over the world and many are featured in this retrospective exhibition. I have taken some pictures of his seascapes around Hartland in North Devon – the area where my mother was born.

The exhibition contains over 60 paintings – from Provence, Venice, New Zealand, Cyprus, Donegal, Tibet and of course Devon and so it goes on. The exhibition is on at the RAMM until the 1st November. I can thoroughly recommend it and it is free!
