In 1948 Douglas was appointed Art Master at Barnard Castle School, a post which he occupied for twenty-five years, influencing a generation of artists. He exhibited widely including one-man shows at the Bowes Museum and Castle Gallery, Barnard Castle. He painted up until his death at the grand age of 90.
