Looking down ‘The Shrubbery’, one of the many steep pedestrian alleys in Bath. These narrow lanes are called ‘ginnels’ or ‘snickets’ in the North of England; in this area they’re ‘drangs’. The back of the Royal Crescent is in the middle distance. My second experiment with a refilled marker pen, it worked well on a big sketch like this.

I love the light and shade in this drawing. It makes me think of a crisp spring day when the sunshine makes you believe summer is just around the corner.
