A few years ago, I was arrested by a stunning image: the high light source in the entrance to the wonderful V&A museum was falling on a man's felt hat and mustard jacket, reflecting in the granite counter on which he was leaning. The space around him created what I thought was a perfect composition.  He was kind enough to let me take a photo, and unfortunately, I mislaid his name.

During the January 2021 Lockdown, I was really enjoying portraiture via Sky TV's Portrait Artist of the Week, beamed into our homes. I had time to go through old photos. The image of one man alone in the V&A took on a new meaning during the pandemic. After being given a set of Unison pastels for Christmas, it was a pleasure to imagine myself back in the V&A, drawing. Counter-intuitively, it turned out to be a more flowing process than my usual ink and watercolour studies.
