The bends

Bath has a lot of steep streets, and lots of them have hairpin bends; so here’s one I pass fairly often (Streetview here). The first sketch was done in full sun last week (it’s followed by the initial line drawing; I added the figures from a reference photo I took just before heading home). Then a couple of earlier versions of the same scene (sat slightly further to the right on the pavement) from April 2013, and June 2012 when I’d been sketching for about a year. The three sketches over three years are a good example of my ongoing see-sawing between no-line and bold line, with the latest one being somewhere in the middle!
