Tuktuk Day 135

“Lazy Sunday Afternoon,” as the song goes. Everyone waiting to see Scotland bid for a place in the last 16 in Germany. Spoiler? No, I don’t think they will do it!

Delighted to be back at Villa Park, Birmingham as a guest of Dave Baldwin of Papilios Creative fame! Continuing the musical theme, “….So this is Villa
And what have you done?
Another great picture
And a new one just begun.”

With apologies to John Lennon and the Small Faces.

Yes, Dave has surpassed himself with a new Villa Park piece of art. Tragically, I cannot draw a straight line and I have long been an admirer of Dave’s work but I think this is taking it to the next level. Congratulations.

As he says, “Now finished my latest football stadium watercolour – ‘Villa Park’ as seen facing the Holte End entrance. 25 hours of drawing and painting to get to this. Prints available from my website

Whilst I am in the area, it would be remiss not to mention Birmingham City and West Bromwich Albion. Both of these clubs have been drawn by Dave. Great work.

Incidentally, despite his passion for Villa, Dave no longer lives in the city and his nearest club is Cheltenham. You will not be surprised to see that here too!

Here it’s a coaster but you can also have a poster, a keyring etc etc. Enjoy!

…and talking about enjoyment, I hope that you are enjoying my digital tour of the grounds but please remember that the purpose of this 180 day challenge is to raise funds for Prostate Cancer and an equal amount for my local club, FC Deportivo Galicia. As always, I do hope that you are all enjoying this digital tour of the UK and that you will consider a donation to support FC Deportivo Galicia and/or Prostate Cancer UK 

If everybody chipped in with just £1, I would easily hit my target of £10,000 and life would be easier at the club whilst the charity could continue its great work. A HEARTFELT thanks, if you can donate. If you can’t any shares of this site or even this post would be gratefully received. Thanks again.
