  • Beauty and Beyond: Stafford Street, Eccleshall

    Beauty and Beyond: Stafford Street, Eccleshall

    Bethan Ward at No. 10 Stafford Street is Eccleshall’s go-to destination for beauty and undies. I drew this street not long before we moved to Scotland and I’m finally updating this archive three years later. It’s a timely post as I gather from their Facebook page that Bethan Ward is shortly relocating to Fletcher’s Garden…

  • Denmark Place, Holloway Road

    Cowling and Wilcox on the Holloway Road sells a great range of sketch books. I’ve been filling one of them up with sketches in and around the Holloway Road.¬† I recently completed another stretch of this road – the part which is directly opposite Cowling and Wilcox. It’s another 1.8m long orginial which I have…

  • Market Place (52 to 36) Burslem

    I’d like to welcome new visitors to a small selection of buildings to the north of St John’s Square in Burslem, Stoke-on-Trent. It’s hard to picture how much these streets have changed over the last century but The Vanished Landscape by the historian Paul Johnson gives a great insight into life growing up in the…

    Match, Pie and Grill, Holloway Road

    Feeling peckish before an Arsenal home game? Plenty of scope for refuelling on the corner of Holloway and Liverpool Road. Here’s the latest drawing in the Holloway Road series. There are two parts to this drawing, an odd assortment of buildings forming Piebury Corner and a row of three story red brick houses. It was…

  • Cheshire Street, Audlem – a dog’s heaven.

    Although I finished this drawing in the summer, I am only just logging it here on the archive so you can see the buildings individually as I know quite a few will be looking at this from your phone. Cheshire Street is the second in the Audlem street series. It sits within the conservation area…

  • 1-35 High Street, Eccleshall

    1-35 High Street, Eccleshall

    This is the third in the Eccleshall series. It’s the south side of the High Street, directly opposite the last Eccleshall drawing I posted on this blog. The street begins with an early 19th century red brick building, listed grade 2 which stands on the corner of High Street and Stafford Street. It’s now home…

  • 2-30a High Street, Eccleshall

    Hello and a warm welcome back to my blog. I have had a quiet spell recovering from some¬† fractures and it is great to be back drawing again. It has been a tonic to work on the second drawing of the rural Staffordshire town, High Street, Eccleshall. High Street forms part of Character Area One…

  • Bishy Road, East Side

    The Bishy Road is complete! It has been a delight to draw this street and to get such an enthusiastic response to my drawings. Thank you Bishy Roaders! As my first drawing of this street went to press, you were just about to greet Le tour de France in some style. As I write this…
