|Jay Hudson's Knit a Year|
On the opposite wall are Ron Bowman's watercolours of London, its places and its people. The colours are clear and crisp and he handles the watercolour with a lightness of touch. I very much liked his portrait of peace campaigner Brian Haw with Big Ben in the background.

|Painting by Tayyaba Gondal|
Expressive paintings by Eliana Parra Rodriguez and Tayyaba Gondal (find out more about Tayyaba in this interview) both bring a splash of colour into the library. Tayyaba's paintings are hung so you can admire them whilst walking down the stairs.
Photos from Walthamstow and District Photographic Society are exhibited all over the library and there's a real range of subjects and styles. Trevor Weatherly's photo of a fox doing a big yawn and Stephanie Waterman's abstract Reflection - Stonebridge Lock and Walthamstow storm breaking were my favourites but there was a lot to take in.
Walthamstow Market is one of my favourite places in the E17 and I really liked Walthamstow Market Photography's exhibition. It would have been nice to see some of the photos in the montages blown up a bit bigger so I could take more in. The photos worked well both in bright colour and moody blue tint that emphasised light, shade and the weight of vegetables in plastic bags.
