Pirate watching TV

In an effort to try to make the best of a bank holiday weekend we hauled ourselves over to Ely, a place I’ve always wanted to visit. But gosh the weather has been so foul today – rain pouring heavily all day. I can see that Ely is beautiful but as we spent the entire time trying to keep out of the rain, it wasn’t the most successful day out. All that wet and cold is just so exhausting, and my poor model did all the driving. Anyway we did have a delicious cream tea at Peacock’s Tearoom, so that was enjoyable.

I'm really enjoying your family sketches. You obviously have great subjects, full of character. How super that someone recognised you as 'that artist'!

Love your sketches, sorry that your outing turned out so poorly.
File it away for a revisit, another time.

You weren't out in that rain yesterday were you - squelch!!!

How about starting to do 'eating' sketches. After all they're captive while in the middle of a cream tea!

He does look tired, did you get into the Cathedral? ( is that the way you spell it? looks wrong) I have always had a yen to go to Ely perhaps when I am 80!!
