As I am fortunate enough to live in Pilton where the Glastonbury Festival is held, and living here makes it easy ofr me to get out with my paints and do a spot of work in between bands, larger and hog roast.

I did a fair bit of drawing and painting last year so I felt that this year I would take it a bit easier and just do a few small postcards which I would offer free on Twitter for a bit of festival fun.

Painting the volkswagen dormobile buses and the Citroen H Van

The festival occupies and few square miles, and 50 odd stages so there is a vast army of businesses on site to offer the best takeaways in all the world. With that in mind I decided to paint a few of the many weird and wonderful food and refreshment vans that are plying their trade.

The three vans below were just randomly chosen really, though each I felt had a particular charm which I felt exemplifies the festival. I had to dodge the weather on occasion though got what I wanted in the end.

I am pleased to say too that they flew off the shelf on Twitter so big thanks to all those who Retweeted and gave great feedback. It is much appreciated.
