Bristol docks, horizontal and vertical

Two sketches from Sunday’s inaugural sketchcrawl for the new ‘Urban Sketchers Bristol/South West’ group. It was chilly down by the water’s edge, but good company and absorption in sketching kept the cold at bay. Thanks to Jules and Charlotte for setting it all up. Bottom left in the second sketch, beyond the tugs and cranes, you can see Jean sketching in the sheltered sunny spot she found!

    The treatment of the shadow on the water is fantastic!

    Thanks Rebecca, a white roller ball pen is great for adding the highlights that I can’t manage with a brush. Doodling watery curves is also good practise! Ed
