I came across some allotments not far from where I live so went for a miander. I have been to allotments before but it just came together that day - the colours and textures; the stories and questions; the structures and I decided to paint and draw them for a year and see a cycle through.

I have no idea what the year will bring and where it will take me creatively but I certainly have more ideas than time! I wonder if I will be sketching people - or just their plots - the overgrown and the organised - some full of colour and a neat garden shed others rambling - It is like a world in an acre!

These particular allotments have a wonderful view over Bath and the sunsets are glorious. So watch this space - and here some paintings for starters!
