am really enjoying producing quick sketches on my new iPad.


Your work is extremely detailed - you must have a lot of patience. I think detail is a relative term. After practising mainly as an architectural draughtsman for the past 26 years, my work is not that detailed. I don’t have great patience – just a will of iron! My drawings nowadays are usually a fast sprint and not a marathon. The faster my pen moves the more satisfying the result.


What is your favourite or most inspirational place? Venice. I would like to visit Seville/ Cordoba area of Southern Spain. Castellon de la Plana (north of


Valencia) is the place where I reinvented my drawing style in 2001. France has the most beautiful old villages but Spain has the colours.


You’ve just retired: congratulations! What are you excited about doing next? Everything! I’m finally living my preferred lifestyle. Now I’ll have more time, I hope to use my weird imagination a bit more and increase my repertoire of artistic technique other than watercolours.


What’s your definition of the perfect day? Waking up without the alarm clock, a quick burst of sketching/drawing, a speed walk or slow jog across the


heather moors opposite our family home on the outskirts of Sheffield, then to end the day, a glass of red wine and meal with family and/or friends.


What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given? Don’t be an architect. But it was my ‘calling’ and I didn’t (still don’t) know any better!
