Small pen drawing in a concert by the Fairhaven Singers in St Johns College Cambridge
This was a while ago now. I posted the charcoal sketches I did in the Fairhaven Singers practice earlier in the day, but this is the pen and crayon sketch I did in my Moleskine sketchbook during the concert on the same evening in St. Johns College Cambridge. 3"x5"

Pen sketch at Norwich Cathedral
On my daughter's wedding day I got just the one chance to sketch - so I grasped it with both hands. Well, Moleskine sketchbook in one hand and pen in the other. They posed in the gateway to Norwich Cathedral. Strong sun and shadows. 3"x5" pen and crayon

Pen sketch in Kings Street Norwich on the eve of my daughter's wedding
I have a simple formula for quick sketching. A small Moleskine notebook so the sketch is always going to be small. In this case 3"x5". A rollerball type pen, and a water soluble monochrome crayon for shading. I did this in around ten minutes.

Oil painting of abandoned houses in the hills above Istaliff, Afghanistan
For me this is an unforgettable view in the hills above the war ravaged village of Istaliff. There was no time to paint; we had miles to walk, but it was an opportunity to deliberately exercise my visual memory. I took a photo for details, but really what counts is the memories I carried with me of the view. I started this oil painting much later back in the studio. It's 16"x16"

The Entrance to Turquoise Mountain, Kabul, Afghanistan
This oil painting of the Turquoise Mountain centre is one of a number of paintings of Kabul which will form my exhibition opening next week in Ely. I don't paint in square format all that often, but the subject here, with strong geometric lines, suited a square canvas well. 16"x16" (40x40cm)

Pencil sketch in Cambridge Science Park
Even in places you know very well, there are always new ways of seeing the same thing. This is a sketch done in a pretty average commercial science park but I still found it interesting to try and capture the late afternoon grey light effect.

Upper Langridge church, Bath, in watercolour and gouache
I started painting this over ten years ago, and finished it recently. It's a watercolour sketch of a very old church building in the tiny village of Upper Langridge near Bath, in the UK
