Looser lines

An early Spring Saturday with Jim in Bath Abbey Courtyard, where we tried to sketch with minimal looking down at the paper, ‘blind contour drawing’. We didn’t manage the recommended “90% looking at subject, 10% checking the picture’s progress” proportions, but  got much livelier  and expressive  lines to drape colours over.  Here’s a tourist sat on a bench with his 2 children.
