"Where Samuel Pepys Stood". This is one of my favourite spots on the south bank where I have sketched several times before. On this spot, illegibly, Samuel Pepys stood and looked out to see the Great Fire of London. All that remains of this momentous occasion are a few wooden foundations left to rot by the waters of the Thames.

Now we come back to an image I'm using in my current painting. A few might recognise this as the back of the boat house at Teen Ranch in Dundee. It has the look of a home - built art installation but is completely functionable in it's setting. I find it an absolutely fascinating structure.

On the tube heading home after a day with students we noticed one seat with an odd covering to the rest. You don't want to think too much about why they had to re-cover the seat but it made for a brilliant subject matter. So this one is titled 'Tube Train, Odd Seat Out."

Sorry for the technical hitch. Here we are now back on track for 26 drawings over 26 days at 26 quid per drawing. There are now 18 consecutive days ahead and hope you can tune in for them. Three of the drawings already have pledges on them (days 1, 4 and 7). Please do get in touch if you'd like to reserve a drawing to buy at the end of the project. Cheers. Al

Erm. So the idea was to post these drawings every day but my camera bust! Sorry for the delay. The drawinsg are coming along very nicely. Honest! I guess there'll be a mega post after my camera is fixed and you'll see a bunch of drawings together. Stay tuned (anyone got a decent camera I can borrow?!)
