A pleasant walk yesterday at East Meon
Its been a while since I have sketched from life so this morning being a nice sunny one with a pleasant breeze i did a couple down at Langstone . I used neocolour crayon like patel and a edding pen. The second one is not as good but stillconveys something to me.
This is of a sketch done in Venice a few years ago.
venice is magic and there are still quite places that you can find off the beaten track,best times to go are probably May or October
