Beautiful Britain - Cranbrook, Kent 1906 by 

A digital painting, using Gruppe_wc in DAP, of a cottage in Cranbrook in 1906.

The original watercolour drawing by Herbert Alexander appeared in ‘Old English Country Cottages’ by Charles Holme 1906, and is out of copyright and in the public domain.

I have opened a shop with CafePress to sell some of my designs on clothing, iPhone & laptop cases, jewellery and lots more:
