A busy double-page sketch of a busy view, from upstairs at Picnic Cafe, this time looking down Upper Borough Walls; a typical Saturday afternoon in Bath, shoppers strolling and checking phones, seagulls soaring and me sketching. (The red phone boxes have been converted into cash-points, and here’s the ground-level Streetview, with more seagulls raiding bin bags.) I’m using the cheap Kuretake #8 brush-pen more than the fancier #40 at the moment; the nylon brush tip’s shorter and firmer than the sable, so easier to control. It’s particularly good for quickly capturing the shapes of passers-by. Below are two earlier views from the same cafe.
