Very nice too Tom, unusual to see a mansion painted like this
Tom Wilson: I guess it is plaster-covered brick, rather than stone.
What a lovely building Tom!
Tom Wilson: Very handsome, Richard.
The spectator makes this!!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Rob. Always good to have a person in a scene, I think.

Very impressive and so white... almost too white.
Maybe because of the 'salt'...
A lot of history is in this house. Did you go in?

I have been there many years ago- I remember an exhibition of paintings - in any case we were inside this elegant building.
Tom Wilson: Elegant is the word!

Elegant in its simple symmetry, Tom...and, Rob is correct about the spectator.
Tom Wilson: A very pleasing design - but, then, it was Robert Adam, who knew what he was about smile
Love that fellow standing there. Makes it for me.
Tom Wilson: My wife, actually smile
Now that's a grand building, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Very much so.
That's a fine house isn't it. usually I wouldn't want people in it but here it works really well because of her position looking at the house.
Tom Wilson: It is indeed - I think a person in a scene like this adds an idea of scale.
