At my home on the south coast of England, I now have the world’s smallest gallery.
It won’t stay small forever as I’m adding to it at the supersonic rate of about one drawing per month. I’m currently working on a picture of Weymouth’s lifeboat, the glacial progress of which you can follow along with on Instagram (via the stories feature). These drawings take a long time to complete. (I’ve never added it up but I’d put it at somewhere between 15 and 25 hours per picture.)
My aim is to build up a Dorset collection. Dorset’s where I’ve grown up and spent almost all my life and it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. It’s full of natural beauty as well as history, ancient and modern.
Although, for now, the collection is small, I’m proud of it and I’ve put the originals, and high quality prints and greeting cards up for sale on Etsy. As a special offer to readers of Pens! Paper! Pencils!, I’m offering 10% off anything in the shop throughout August. This applies to commissions as well as the Dorset collection. Just use the code PPP10 at checkout.
