THE old sights of Long Crendon have been recreated in paint after Denise Angood produced a collection of work based on the 1970s.

Denise lived in the village during the 70s and has spent the last two years painting from original sketches she produced at the time.

In total, 40 paintings have been completed and they will all be on display at an exhibition on May 7.

She said: “It is a place where we lived in the 70s and we have always gone back to visit.

“We were in Brill and I painted the bridge that has been renovated and it started from there.

“I thought why not paint some more so I have been using my old sketches and now I am going to begin painting Thame and some other villages as well.”

Painting is a hobby of Denise’s and is something she has been doing her whole life.

She said: “It is just so relaxing, I love it, I think I have been painting ever since I was about seven.”

The artist will be present at the exhibition, which is all set to take place at the Church Hall of Our Lady of Light in Long Crendon – it will run between May 7 and May 15.
