pastel sketch from tower bridgeI'm staying with pastels for the time being. This is one of four small pastels sketches I did between 5pm and 7pm on Monday this week in London after I had come out of a day conference not far from Tower Bridge. This one is looking upstream towards London Bridge from under Tower Bridge. All on "2x6" Ingres cream-tinted pastel paper.

These sketches are all just done for the enjoyment value and to exploit the capacity of pastels to capture light and colour very quickly.
