F is for Flowers #AtoZChallenge 

It took me a while to find this one and thankfully I’d finished it. Bishops Gardens in Peterborough during 2020 summer had amazing bright pink geraniums. They were so bright it was difficult to walk past and not smile. After having such a horrid and worrying start to 2020 (Global Pandemic) it was such a pleasure to sit and draw the views from the benches in the gardens.

Bench Views Revisited No. 162 September 2020

Whilst you can see the Lido (open air swimming pool) in the background it wasn’t open when I drew this illustration. The Lido didn’t open during 2020 after the start of the Global Pandemic COVID-19.

My theme for A to Z Blogging Challenge is my Bench Views Revisited illustrations done from benches in and around peterborough UK which I started in September 2019. I drew No. 88 in February 2020 then lockdown hit. I restarted the series in August 2020 which meant almost half the series were drawn pre-covid lockdown and the rest of the 190 illustrations were done post COVID-19 lockdown.

    • This series of drawings will show pre and post lockdown scenes. I’m not sure how obvious the differences will be. More so in some than others but I can’t wait to finish them all and find a way to exhibit a wider selection. I wanted to make sure I included references to covid when appropriate.
