Healaugh Church

It feels like a super-long time since I last blogged anything. Those darned burglars! What a palava having to locate receipts and passwords and the like. Then wait for the insurance company to either replace or repay.

In the mean time I’ve had a couple of commissions to complete …one sweet and one scary. Well, not actually scary, but a little strange.

Well, here goes with the sweet commission…

P1040084

Healaugh Church is located out in the countryside of Yorkshire, just outside York (The old capital city of Yorkshire). It’s a quaint old church with a lovely view across the vale of York.

And it has the most beautifully decorated main entrance of a quaint country church. Well, age has not been that kind to it and much of the intricately carved stone has been weather-worn away.

A colleague at work asked me to draw to draw the main doorway as a gift for some friends.

 

 

I have to admit I kind of fell in love with this doorway myself as the drawing progressed, and when it came to handing the drawing over I was quite torn.

JCB in the rain

An exciting day yesterday, as building work started. Well, actually the pre-enabling work. I sketched the JCB in the drizzle as it started to tear up the concrete around the dining room.
