Happy Christmas everyone

A few more commuters left in the year..

Maybe time left for a frenzy of activity tomorrow.

Back on the passenger wagons

This was a service on which I actually had use of my hands – most trips while I wait for my motorbike helmet to come back have been to crammed to draw.

Weymouth & Portland Bill

From the hill behind Eweleaze farm – can’t remember whether I posted this before. Old sketch.


From La Roma – purveyors of tasty yet odd pizzas.

Have to work on my cars. They always start well, but it’s the wheels that stuff ’em every time.

Halfway down France

Ballyhalbert Rainbow

Cracking double rainbow

Seals off Ballyhalbert

Newcastle, County Down

In so much rain we couldn’t see the town.  A wanted that car red, but it was black. Done from a great place called Olive Bizarre – recommended.

Another ancient sketchbook find…

Somewhere near Lodsworth – a year ago almost to the day

Back on the train sketching

Difficult to sketch on a motorbike – my new highly effective escape from the clutches of Southern Rail. Nice to have a break though.

Had to respond to this wonderfully shiny pate.

A lot better than yesterday’s effort, which I can’t bring myself to post.
