Apples on the Allotment

Apples on the Allotment (10″ x 8″ acrylic on mount board)

Back to it after a week off – and back to the allotment.  I saw this on a sunny morning a few weeks ago and loved both the apple tree and the oil drum!

Sunshine and showers – good for the flowers…

and good for vegetable growing too, no doubt.

A Place to Sit (30cm x 30cm acrylic on board)

A few weeks ago I started visiting local allotments with the idea of painting the growing season and general allotment life.  All I managed at the time was to make a few sketches and take a few photos.  This is the first of two paintings based on the sketches.  I was attracted by the empty chair and wondered how many times it had been wearily sat upon for that well-earned mug of tea.  I plan to go back with my paints next time and know that given the recent weather the scene will have completely transformed!
