The Parade, Leamington Spa

After lots of redraws of the right hand side I realised it wasn't working so I cropped it and added more to the left hand side. It now feels balanced.

Banbury Cross

This took me longer than i expected. I envisioned this scene from the other side of the statue. When i got there and tried it that way I realised it wasn't firing me up in any way. So I went to the other side and drew it from there. Most of the scene was behind me so I had to keep craning backwards, constructing the composition on the hoof.

Farmhouse Kitchen

This is a new thing for me. I have drawn interior spaces before but this is the first time I have added colour. Artwork in progress.

Coventry Cathedral

Colour rough.

Adderbury Church (New drawing)

I realised that the right hand side of the original drawing/painting wasn't observed correctly so I went to the church today to redraw just the bits I needed. The corrected painting is shown below. On the second visit of the day I drew a whole new version of the church. This is it.

Adderbury Church

Not quite finished.

Farm house kitchen

This farm house kitchen and adjoining dining area is crammed full of interesting and colourful objects, paintings, patterned fabric and loads of utensils, pots and pans and crockery.

Coventry Cathedral drawing

I had quite a few attempts at drawing the Cathedral from the front. I wanted to include the Epstein sculpture. It wasn't working so I stopped trying. The ruins of the original Cathedral were much more appealing to me. I stood somewhere in the middle facing the modern entrance and drew what surrounded me.

Mill Bridge, Leamington Spa

After many many redraws and various colour versions I have finally finished it. The last bit that fell into place was the removing of the cluttered top left corner. The decision to include text came naturally when I was feeding one of the babies and staring at the poster on their bedroom wall.
