Whilst doing a search I came across a site dedicated to the late Yorkshire artist Joseph Appleyard (http://www.josephappleyard.co.uk/index.html). In the course of construction by his son David, himself an artist, it is a wonderful read and contains a cornucopia of his sketches and paintings, his life story and comercial work.

I recommend you read it.

Thanks for the link Doug. I hadn't heard of Joseph Appleyard before and he did some astonishing pieces. How lucky for his children that he kept such good records.
Do you know some of them remind me of pieces that I have seen you drawing. You have a sort of similar style and obviously a great love for buildings. Really nice stuff:thumbsup:

You flatter me Chris, I can't hold a candle to him, though I would love to do more sketching like he did.
