Spencer Place in the Rain

Jo Dunn Spencer Place in the Rain watercolour painting 2019

It’s four in the afternoon, the end of December
I’m painting this now just to make me feel better
North Leeds is cold, but I like where I’m living
There’s music on Francis Street all through the evening…

This is back-to-back housing in Leeds,
where you occupy either the front or the back of the house
(both look pretty much the same)
and have neighbours on 3 sides.

 

 

Willow Tree, Chapel Allerton

Willow Tree, Chapel Allerton, Leeds 7It’s dark at 4 o’clock.
The willow tree is adorned with fairy lights
for the festive season.
Cars and people are on the move and
I’m drawing in a doorway.
