I’M PLEASED to have tested out most of my walks for the new book, making the most
of a mostly warm, settled, sunny October as at midnight last night that all changed
and in came cooler, more seasonal, temperatures, a fairly fierce wind and, this morning,
On Friday it was warm enough to sit with a coffee at Ossett’s market, drawing the
Dutch gable of Johnson’s the Cleaners(left). I waited for Barbara on New Street,
another part of Victorian Ossett with large sandstone villas surrounded by trees
and shrubberies. One of the lime trees(right) had a large excrescence half way up
its trunk, which I guess is the result of a virus.
Hand drawn in the opticians on Thursday (left) and a chair drawn there the previous
Thursday. Will I ever go a week without drawing in a waiting room?!
