Sometimes, it’s just about the simple things

I’m still playing about in my sketchbook until the mood or inspiration to do something larger hits me!

This is one of my recent favourites.

Sometimes, it can just be the simplest of things that catches your eye or strikes a chord. This sketch is just such an example.

We took our barbeque up to a local park the other evening. The weather was glorious with the sun still up, but gradually setting behind the tree line. The park was surprisingly quiet and it just felt so peaceful and spacious.

It was so nice just to have the time and space to relax and to drink in the views and appreciate the surroundings. Even a simple a scene, of the bright sun catching a tree trunk had a quiet, tranquil and timeless beauty about it.

I was quite pleased with how this one turned out.

It’s a big day tomorrow here in the UK as we vote in the general election and, if the polls are anything to go by, we’re heading for a dramatic shift of power in Westminster and across the country.

I don’t know why but I find it hard to believe that it will be the first change in the political leadership of this country since long before I started painting again in earnest at the beginning of 2016!

I know that all of this has very little to do with me mucking about with my watercolours but, whatever your political persuasion, it feels too big to allow it to pass without a mention!
