I love drawing on a large scale with charcoal. You have to stand at an easel and act like a proper painter; standing back and lurching forward and waving your arm about. These two drawings arrived when I was doing just that. Classic FM on the radio helps as well.
This is a great place to visit at any time of the year. I took the photographs for this painting last year when a group us met at the cafe for Brunch. The snow was an extra treat for me. That’s my Christmas card sorted!
There is always a chance that as I live with it for a while I’ll see something else I want to add. I really couldn’t resist adding the heron. All I need to do now is hang it in the studio ready for next weekend’s open studio event. Everyone welcome – 11m to 4pm. 39 Long Lane, Attenborough. NG9 6BN

Another session on my Attenborough painting. I have pushed back the distance with a pale blue glaze and added the right hand reflections.
