A trip to Denbies Vineyard
near Dorking to deliver pictures for the Croydon Art Society exhibition. The vineyard nestles in a valley below Box Hill on the North Downs, and near the Surrey Hills. And it’s August Bank Holiday… What a good opportunity for a sketching trip… except that it’s August Bank Holiday.
Heavy rain… Cold wind… Flooded roads… Thick fog…
All I managed was this sketch from the car park. Box Hill is lost in the clouds.
Ink and watercolour, 43 x 13 cm. Click to enlarge.
The exhibition continues until 13 September, open every day. The gallery is on the first floor of Denbies, so should be safe from flooding…
P.S. Just realised: we don’t need to display the tax disc on the windscreen anymore — I can take it down now.
