Last night I went down to Ely Cathedral to make some studies for my next project
'Another Year'. I wanted to capture the light on the Cathedral as the sun was setting. I set up my folding seat and art equipment in a good position and started to paint, light colours on dark paper. Very soon I was aware that a rather beautiful foreign girl was watching me in at a distance in a respectful way . She asked if she could take a photo, as I bashfully explained that it was only a sketch. She then came and sat on the grass right next to me, and there she remained for the next hour! Somehow, the Cathedral (my drawing not the real thing) managed to end up crooked but it proved to be an interesting evening nontheless.
