On the Road


Going off to Japan very soon now, on the Samurai Challenge and really excited, if not with a little trepidation. The car and the driver are great (but I’ve got a few reservations about the…

Plaza Mayor Madrid

Plaza Mayor Madrid

I went to the Goodwood Revival this month; an event that gets more and more popular every year since its inception in 1998. I remember exhibiting there in its early years. Everybody at the event…
All or Nothing

Slaid Cleaves

Burlington House

Burlington House


I visited the Royal Academy of Arts this weekend and was struck by the brilliantly domineering and impressive sculpture by Frank Stella, which i just had to sketch. Set in the Courtyard of Burlington House,…
Gunnera Manicata

Gunnera Manicata


Our Gunnera Manicata, next to the pond, is currently bursting back into life after a winter hibernation. Probably my favourite plant, it will grow amazingly quickly to an enormous size before dying back again in…
Hank Haint & Cruickshanks

Hank Haint & Cruickshanks


I've just returned from Brudenell Social Club in Leeds where a few local bands were playing, including Hank Haint & Cruickshanks. Hank (a.k.a my son Henry) with his motto "doing more with less" has been…
Back in touch…

Back in touch…


I am fully aware and feeling very guilty that I haven’t posted anything since before Christmas! My only excuse is that over this Winter I've been really preoccupied with a lot of building work going on at…

I love watching the crowds react to the exciting festival atmosphere of Goodwood Revival. This year was no different - everyone dressed to evoke the historic era of the 50's and 60's, and the enjoyment…
Goodwood Revival

Goodwood Revival


I went to the Goodwood Revival at the weekend. It was sold out this year as usual and very crowded, but still a great day out. All of the people in period dress makes for…

Remembrance


This ink and watercolour sketch depicts the flags outside our local village church in Normandy, France in the early morning light. I imagine they've been there since June 6th, to commemorate the 70th Anniversary of…
