....this sketch is across two pages in my concertina Seawhite sketchbook. It takes watercolour well.
~ The Arcade Carriage Museum ~

This next painting could become a completed work, once framed with a matt/mount board.
(measures 12" x 9")
Drawn with dip ink using my 'improvised pen' - a piece of bamboo with a matchstick in it - matchstick sharpened to a point. It gives a random line, which sometimes can be better than using a standard pen
I moved position a couple of times whilst there and got another view of this granary,
which as you see, still awaits watercolour which I will do in the studio.
The great advantage to being there in person, is that the scene and feel of the place imprints itself in the brain, completing a painting at home is like I'm still there.
I was delighted when my friend Elsie Roff happened along. Being a great photographer she took some photos of me drawing....
Can you tell it was windy and cold there, I was prepared with extra jumpers as layers but even so I got frozen brrrrr!, which is when I retreated to the arcade
.......ahhh what artists go through, lol.
