Detour on the way home from a recent work trip. This is a great spot…
…and we had an ice cream. Just like the Victorians might’ve done.


The Alhambra Gardens

Alhambra Gardens, watercolour painting by Jo Dunn 2022

The Alhambra Gardens in Roundhay Park, Leeds. I have drawn here a few times over the last few years, this is my first painting. I’m pleased it has been accepted for an upcoming exhibition, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the park, open 16th July – 4th September 2022. More info here.

The Mersey Gateway

Opened in 2017, the Mersey Gateway Bridge spans the River Mersey and the Manchester Ship Canal between Widnes and Runcorn. The new bridge is as mesmerising to me as the old Silver Jubilee Bridge was when I was a kid.
