Pulteney Bridge

Sketches of Pulteney Bridge and weir in the centre of Bath. In the first one a river trip’s about to set off, and a red sight-seeing bus has just crossed the bridge; the tourist season is waking up. The close-up of the weir is from 2013 when I was first discovering dilute grey ink, building up layers of tone. And the last sketch is from 2012, when I’d been sketching for a year, and was just using black ink and watercolour.

    Love these. Reminds me of sitting on a bench by the river in the middle of winter, munching a toasted sarnie from one of those little cafe’s on the bridge.

    Thanks Jules, it’s a good spot, with a lovely continuous roar from the weir. Ed
