Three corners

Three sketches of the wonderfully ornate Victorian building on the corner of Westgate and Union Street in Bath. There’s about a year between each sketch, the most recent at the top, with a shift from fountain pen to bamboo dip-pen, and a steady increase in colour as I add watercolour and move from Lexington Grey to the technicolor world of De Atramentis inks. Next attempt I’ll try to include the top and the bottom in the same sketch…

    Really interesting to see your different approaches to the same subject over time. I like the De Atramentis colours very much.
