Nature in 2020 continued to be important after the first UK lockdown, when green spaces provided refuge from the uncertainties of the Covid-19 pandemic. When I returned to London after shielding with family, I reacquainted myself with my local green space, Brockwell Park which lies between Brixton and Herne Hill. Over the last days of summer and into autumn, I felt inspired to draw the lush greenery which soon changed into the vibrant colours of autumn. Of course, this soon gave way to winter and new lockdowns from November. Here are some of those iPad drawings.
