Time for some sketching

On a lovely walk at Heddon's Mouth last week and it gave me a great opportunity to sketch.

First though, this is the location:    HEDDON VALLEY (when you have opened the link, scroll down for more information about the place).


Sketching this bridge was easy, there was a very useful bench nearby where I set up my sketching kit...


Further along the track the path leads to the sea.  I was more interested in the cliffs, they looked very majestic in the late afternoon sun.







Time to stop at the pub for a cider and some more sketching...lovely

Watermouth Harbour


Local for us and yet we haven't stopped here for a walk around in ages.  Finally, we decided perhaps it was time to visit and so glad we did.  This little gem of a harbour made a great place to sit and sketch plus take a walk with the dogs (yes we still have Hamish visiting)!


Sketching was worth this outing too,
but first some photos






















dinghies waiting to be used...


a boat under repair...


and a crane ready to move something big...I wonder what!





























Mostly I enjoyed the sketching
truly en plein air time - yes I took my paints and easel with me...

(initial painting)

then I added pastel

Final piece....
