For a while now, I’ve been picking up bits and pieces on my walks around the Crook, usually in the company of Bess, my faithful, but arthritic hound. Recently, I started doing this a bit more systematically so that I can reassemble the walks on canvas, recording the things I found (objects, sights, impressions of light and colour) as well as the route. This is an experiment and I will see how far it will go. Here is an example. Tell me what you think.
