My on-line diary began in the 1990's from my studio in the North of England. After a lapse of ten years, I resumed posting from my present studio on the Caribbean island of Dominica.

From the far beginning, the intention has been to give an insight into my working methods, and to share the triumphs, trials and tribulations of work-in-progress.

My diary pages are followed by thousands of artists, art students and art lovers in over 50 countries.

Been there, done that…

A couple of days ago my brother featured a photograph of Halifax indoor market (See a glorious listed building that is equal to a couple of cathedrals. 

Not to be out done, here are a couple of sketches I made of the market.  The first is from the very same vantage point as my brother’s photograph and the second, shows the market’s grandiose entrance arcade.  As my regular followers know, I have a great love for markets - and all the more so when they housed within fine buildings. 


  1. I do like your profile to read. It is great reading. I also like what you do. I will have to search for the house Denise did up for you around in the gardens.

  2. Hi, Roger! I had to come and 'meet' you when your brother mentioned you and posted your wonderful marketplace sketch. Alan is one of my most favorite people in blogland. He speaks highly of you, so I'm sure you're great, too! :) Although I hear you owe him for a camera batter. ha.
