At Marsh Lane Nature Reserve, on a whim, I recycled an old pencil sketch of Aston Brewery (made on the same day as this more complete drawing).  The vertical ribs of the tanks became reflections in the water of and the shading of their lids became low clouds.  This sketch was made in a widening palette of fountain pen ink, black, blue, red and brown, liberated with water and overlaid in places with conte crayon, gouache and watercolour.
