For the last seventeen weeks I've been out with a friend, Adrian, to look at a local place that interests us. I paint a bit and he writes a bit so perhaps at the end of the year, we should have enough material to put in a small book. This amuses us and makes us work a bit, talk a lot, see things we would not on the usual common round. All the pictures so far can be seen on My Instagram page https://www.instagram.com/johnscarland/

This one of Chaldon Church like all the others is done in the studio from a photograph - it has beginnings in watercolour then moving on to strong darks in gouache. The low churchyard wall gives a strong horizontal to hold it all together.
