Green Park Station

Saturday morning sketching with Louise and Mark at the farmer’s market in Green Park Station, Bath. (The last train left the station in 1962, part of the notorious Beeching cuts.) The line drawing took about 30 minutes, with another 20 minutes adding an ink wash at home. I was trying out a large panoramic sketchbook I’ve made; having the extra space was a luxury, but it was tricky to handle when standing…

Topical note: Spot the red poppy being worn by a shopper ahead of  Remembrance Sunday, today. (Click here to see the picture bigger)
