Hampstead Heath in September

In spite of the forecast for rain groups of 9 artists met outside the Italian cafe at the bottom of Parliament Hill, in socially distanced groups. Some of us made for the model boat pond whilst others concentrated on the complex geometry of the band stand.

The heavens didn't open until lunchtime when we were able to sit under the awnings of the cafe and under the bandstand roof. This latter location was populated by teenagers from the local schools, playing music and lending a festival atmosphere to the day.

Artists worked hard and enjoyed the day, in spite of the later wet weather.

The Heath is getting ready for the autumn with trees about to shed their leaves and turn colour. It afforded a good choice of outdoor scenes with landscape, people and some buildings.

Some more artists worked from home on the layered theme of history, including one from Priscilla Worley of a house in Hackney on the market for £4 million.
