Just off the easel… Pearl Insurance

A3 size, ink and graphite

The former Pearl Insurance office on South Parade, Leeds.

Just bought some pure graphite pencils this weekend, none of your normal pencil rubbish, this is just graphite, thick and black and ace for smudging and getting all over your hands like a kid doing finger painting, lovely, and they weigh a ton as well.

There’s two trips coming up for me in the next few weeks with plenty of opportunity for sketching & painting, just don’t tell the wife about the first one because its supposed to be her 50th birthday week away but I’ll take the pencils and paint, just in case, well you never know do you…

She’s not going on the second trip a few weeks later, more of that later.
