Fairly fast

I had great fun yesterday at our sketch-crawl on the roof of Bath Abbey, I’ll scan and post pictures soon. In the meantime here are some speedy urban sketches from the last few months, using a variety of materials; the lines and basic shadow patterns were done fast on site, then colour added at home. The first two are in Bath and then a roadside burger-van sketched while waiting for a lift, all three using an ink-brush. Then a pencil sketch of a pub in Scotland, and finally a quick pen drawing of one the many  famous black and white buildings in Chester. Pencil’s fluid, loose and fast, pen’s precise, and a fine-tipped ink-brush has aspects of both.
