Townscapes in Pen 

I’ve been doing quite a bit of work lately in colour, so thought I would mix it up a bit and do some line drawing for a change!
I used a drawing pen and Windsor and Newton black ink on Bristol Board, and worked from a combination of rough sketches and photos taken on my mobile phone.

As it was early evening, it was quite quiet on the river – only one boat moored up and a few swans!

I carried on working in the same style for the following sketch of a riverside pub, also in Norwich.
