shilton painting 

Hello there, hope you are well. Im wondering if you know this artist, its signed on the bottom and its shilton i think? its a beautiful painting and am wondering if it might buy me a house one day! ha ha anyway thank you for your help

Answered Tuesday 10 April 2012

if it is by Shilton, he is listed as being opperative around 1850s, it looks very muchf like a place I know very well, Cockington in Devon, not sure from the rather shakey photograph, if you wanted you could try a better photograph, value won't be high though.
