Current Project

St Albans

St Albans Market

St Albans is renowned for its two charter markets – Wednesday & Saturday and over 1,100 years old! In February 2022, I started drawing the Wednesday Market. It has taken a whole year to draw every stall/van in the market, starting from The Cheesewheeler and finishing at The PapaPaella Van. Spending 45 minutes on each drawing and using a Japanese Moleskin sketchbook & 6B Faber-Castell pencil.

It’s been amazing hearing the individual stories of each person along the way. So many of the stall holders who worked with their grandparents, as young people, are now continuing the legacy.

In February 2023, I began painting small oil studies on board, of each stall/van. I will paint bigger paintings on site, once these have been completed, then work in the Studio from memory. To see this ‘working process in action’ please see Cityscape Paintings.
