House Portrait #18

House Portrait #18An art lover’s house in Oakwood, Leeds – early one morning, the end of August. The trampoline is going soon, but the owners and I were glad it features in the drawing. Can you see the Witch on her broomstick weathervane?

Sunday afternoon, Roundhay Park

Sunday afternoon, Roundhay ParkThe last day of the summer holidays…
warm, sunny and showery.
Walking and scooting round the lake,
having a good time and
eating ice cream,
feeding the ducks and
holding hands,
looking at the clouds and
drawing pictures.

Galloway, part 1

JDunn - Swartbles and windmills - southeast JDunn - Swartbles and windmills - southwestThe Rhins of Galloway, a good place to get away when the world’s gone mad. It’s very green and peaceful, and the sheep don’t bother you.

Horse Chestnut Tree, Potternewton Park

Horse chestnut tree, Potternewton Park, Leeds 7This tree in my local park is wider than it’s tall. Two weeks ago, the candles were at their best. I’ve painted horse chestnuts in blossom for a few years – it’s not easy and this is my favourite attempt so far. I’ll have another go next year…
