I'm here for you, baby

Saint Nicolas's church in Compton

I had to sit in the furthest corner of the church yard in order to get a wide enough view of the building and graves. It's the Romanesque church dedicated to Saint Nicolas in the small village of Compton, near Guildford, in Surrey in the UK.

It's small but rather heavyset church, and very old. Some of its stonework is allegedly Anglo-Saxon (that is, preceding the Norman conquest of Britain in 1066), and while a lot of places make that claim, it looks pretty convincing here. Most of the fabric is probably 12th century, however, with beautiful Romanesque arches. It also has, rather usually, a Leper's hole.

Jamison at work #2

I found I had another sketch of Jamison, also done during work time. Although by work time, I mean listening to presentations.

It was done with a Pigma micron pen.

Reading at home

I painted this watercolour from life in about an hour and a half. Not long enough, as you can see.
