It was a portrait day in my sketchbook yesterday! The nature of the building we were sketching from just stayed with the way I held my book, even though it was a fab panorama!
I would like to work this up in to a painting. I started this drawing at the building just next to the Monument, you can see the line is a bit light and hesitant here. Gradually I got in to it, and my favourite bit of all has to be the church joining Cornhill and Gracechurch Street. Back overlooking the stomping ground of one great g g g g (not sure how many x) Grandfather,that ran that pub in Gracechurch Street. Imagine what he would think of it now!....

I said goodbye to two of my paintings. One is travelling to the other side of the world, and the other just up the road!
I was an artist in action at the exhibition, so I took the opportunity to plan out my latest commission.

I got the final puzzle at the Friends of Eastbourne Hospital Coffee morning this morning.
That means they have sold all of their first batch, but they will be getting some more, which is really good news.
Now I wonder, will this puzzle be harder to complete than it was to draw?
We will fight them on the beaches!!

I have also been experimenting with acrylics on some little box canvases, which are being painted to raise money for the Peace Project at Chalk Gallery. I am going to mix up a little resin for these today, so fingers crossed...I will post the results later!!
