I was cycling to the nature reserve where I observe and paint. This time I stopped on the fifteenth century packhorse bridge and looked across at the newer arches carrying the railway across the River Blythe. This quick sketch was done in charcoal.
This second sketch was, i think, done another day. It is a view of the same bridge but from the other side. I was in a hide in the reserve. This was in pen and constitutes notes for a painting not yet executed.
I have just found another sketch in my folders. View from the same hide I think but in the evening light.
