While walking our grandpup (our son's dog) above their home in Calver in Derbyshire I took these photos of thirty thousand thistles and a fly on a flower on my phone camera. Haven't things moved on since my first 1KB digital camera!
2 sketches from our outdoor meeting last Tuesday evening with Heeley Art Club at Beauchief Gardens, Sheffield upstream from Abbeydale Industrial Hamlet which you can see on the upper sketch across the mill-pond.
There's a small group of poppies in the cornfield opposite Firs Farm on Ringinglow Road. It's on my regular (3.5 mile) speed walk to buy the local paper. The painting is drawn from my memory/imagination - that's supposed to be Hangram Lane in the mid ground and Fulwood/Crimicar Lane in the background. The sheep have their own fields, trees are omitted for clarity! Can you tell I've bought myself some coloured inks.
