horningsea sketch in pastels pen and oil pastelsThis narrow lane in Horningsea leads down to the River Cam. It was raining so I did this from the pickup. Starting with pen and lumocolour water-soluble crayons I added a little colour with watercolour pencils. Back in the studio I added further colour with a mixure of pastels  and oil pastels.

Actually, more interestingly, a blackbird was rooting around on the ground just outside the window of the pickup and I spent an equal amount of time sketching elements of the bird as it scurried about.
