Monday July 8th found me at the Purbeck Artisan yard as duty artisan for the day. As usual I took the ProMarkers with me and my current pieces in progress. I have a list of ideas to work on.
1) New Santa Over Dorset series start for Christmas cards 2019. The first two cards will be “Santa through Durdle Door” and “Santa over West Bay”.

Now these are completed I can move on with some other water based pieces. I am very pleased with how both have come out.
2) Lifeboat piece for a friend
Suzie that I work with at the boats is engaged to Mike who works for the RNLI. Last year I did a piece of Suzie sailing around The Needles as part of the Round the Island Race. Mike had asked if I could do a piece based on him out testing a lifeboat. I have drawn lifeboats previously but this is now my best example of that class of boats.
3) commission idea spot is reserved
4) sailing and / or boat pieces
I looked through recent photos that I have been collating and decided that a piece based on the False Creek Ferry company whose boats Anne and I enjoyed during our April visit to Vancouver. This piece also includes a number of high rise residential blocks and I added some orcas based on recent reports from Vancouver of sightings. Again a piece I am pleased with too.
In addition to the pics drawn I also sold art and craft pieces for a number of our collective and chatted with many visitors.
