I drew this ages ago of the Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral on Duke Street which is just off Oxford Street in London.
Another oldie this time the reception building at The Mariners on the Island of Anguilla.
I drew this just before it was knocked down for a development of flats. It was the old Palladium Cinema in Kendal. The front part of the building had some lovely 1930 details, now lost forever. The building had already closed down but I was able to get access, I took some photos in the gloom but it wasn’t until the photos were developed that I was able to really see all the furniture and original light fittings that my flash photos had picked up.
The Esplanade Gardens Cafe on the seafront at Shanklin on The Isle Of Wight has recently been ‘redeveloped’ with a new roof and layout. Unfortunately this has meant the loss of the little cupola and the internal wood panelling that gave it it’s character….that’s progress!
Brougham Castle, well……..what’s left of it!
The castle gateway at Egremont.
Holy Trinity Church in Kendal.
Old House in Askrigg.
The lovely Coniston, where it doesn’t always rain……though it has done every time I’ve been there and I’ve been there a lot of times!
Cleater Moor, old library and civic hall.
The old antique shop, Temple Sowerby.
Sepulchre Lane, Kendal.
The Old Mill and Church, Aysgarth, Wensleydale.
I’m going through some drawings and trying to put them in some sort of order………..I’m failing miserably! I’ve spent the morning trying to work out where some of them were drawn……why oh why weren’t they labelled.
One of my problems is that when I’m drawing I’m interested in that drawing but as soon as its finished it’s put aside and I start the next one. I assume I’ll remember a drawing but I don’t…….and after a few years, well I might remember drawing it but where it was drawn…………
Bit by bit they will be sorted but in the mean time I’m going to post them on my blog randomly.
I knew there were another couple of drawings of Southport! This is Lord Street.
