Something different - I decided to go 'on the road' with some of my work, starting by setting up a stall at Sheffield Chess Congress on July 1st.  

Many thanks to the organisers and everyone who stopped by to look

at my work, chat and proffer feedback - it was a long, but enjoyable day and really good to hear first-hand comments about my work from serious chess players.

Sunshine on a rainy day

 

A picture to brighten the dismal summer of 2012!  A woman stands in the pounding rain in front of York Minster, holding a huge bouquet of glowing sunflowers as the rain and wind tear through the people and tree around her.  

 

I stood in the cold, pouring rain on a May day, sketching and taking photographs of York Minster on a day like this.

 

I was looking at the reflections and how the rain affected people and the appearance of the buildings. I love the way people and buildings recede into the background through a 'fog' of rain, contrasting with the vivid yellow of the sunflowers in the foreground, hence my choice of charcoal and ink for all but the flowers in the picture.
