It was wonderful to have access to a shared tenement garden during lockdown. These small drawings and paintings were created almost daily from observation using acrylic, ink, pencil and highlighter pen. The last four small paintings I call Vertigo Paintings because I created them while suffering from vertigo. It was strangely calming to paint and I found that working quickly on the paintings all at once helped with the dizziness.
