Six pigeons

Sat on my habitual weekend sketching perch, the steps by the back-door to the Roman Baths, overlooking the paved square next to Bath Abbey. The people on the benches were the original focus for the sketch, and then the pigeons landed…  Fast brush-pen fun; about 20 minutes for the dark ink work, 5 for the dilute ink-wash shadows, and 5 for the colour wash.

    There’s a chance I may see and sketch this scene for myself! We might make a trek to Bath after the symposium. . . hope so!
