Works by Charles Sykes

Drawings and one painting of local scenes 1940-1950

The place is North Berkshire, the town is Abingdon and the villages are Drayton, Sutton Wick and Sutton Courtney.  Having spent his life in Newcastle-upn-Tyne and then London for 40 years he did not like the country, and this shows in the painting.
