Long Causeway is a street in the middle of Peterborough, UK.
The first time I sat on the benches in and around peterborough, where I walked to work and shopped, I can remember finishing them or so I thought and a friend at work said they’re doing it to annoy you. I said ‘doing what?’ and they told me that lots more benches were b eing put into Lond Causeway. It’s a strange place for me to judge what is a bench and what is a bench view as lots of the benches don’t have backs and are curved so you can sit facing both ways and in all sorts of directions.
This is a typical example of things we chose to leave out. Those few lines in the background right side of the drawing was lots of buildings. I wanted to focus on the signs and benches and the electric wheelchairs which whizzed passed.
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.
