After leaving the West country (see previous post) I went to spend a couple of nights with friends in a village in Herefordshire.
I did a sketch of the house before I left.
On the way back from Herefordshire I spent the afternoon in Worcester. While I was there, did a couple of small (about 8 x 8 cm) sketches in my sketchpack.
The next stop on the itinerary was Woodbridge in Suffolk, situated on the river Deben about 8 miles from the coast. I sat on a bench one morning when the tide was out and sketched the boats with the Tide Mill in the background.
The next evening we went to the Star Inn in Wenhaston and I just had time for a quick sketch before we went inside for our dinner.
I spent the last week in Gloucestershire and sketched the Market Hall, in Chipping Campden. Built in 1627, it was being repaired and there was some plastic sheeting on the roof!
In Mickleton I spent a happy hour sitting on the edge of a grave, sketching the church of St Lawrence.The atmosphere was very English accompanied by the calls of rooks.
My final sketch was a portrait of my sister’s dog, Rufus, who posed very well!
