The Ladies section of Cambridge Lawn Tennis Club (of which I am a member) held a silent auction of promises in September 2018 to raise much needed funds for the Milton Hospice, Cambridge. I pledged a graphite drawing worth £125. The successful bidder was a member from Grantchester. I visited Maddy at home and we went for a walk around the beautiful lanes and pathways of Grantchester and I snapped resource photographs along the way. This is the result: I used just four of the 200 or so photographs taken to make up the composition. Maddy is an incredible dog. I had arranged a date to meet her, but unfortunately she had an emergency operation, so our meeting was delayed by a few weeks. Apart from lack of fur growth on her underbelly, Maddy recovered extremely well from her emergency ordeal, although she did get a bit tired at the end of our walk because she kept jumping into the River cam to fetch sticks – her favourite pastime. A lovely little exercise in graphite.
