Based in Gilling East, Jonathan has been a regular visitor to the arboretum since moving to the area in 2010.

Working predominantly in watercolour, but also experimenting with oils, charcoal and pencil, Jonathan’s exhibition will emphasise the benefits of observing nature throughout the year.

Mr Pomroy said: “I have already been putting the hours in as artist-in-residence. How could I miss the splendour of autumn? I have relished painting the landscapes and getting to know the hidden corners and individual trees.”
