bramore hall in charcoalBreamore Hall is an Elizabethan House of monumental proportions, and I wanted to focus here on the massive scale of the building. I sat on the grass and enjoyed the sheer pleasure of sketching a building - and nothing else.

Subconsciously I have compensated for the converging verticals you typically get when photographing a large building close up. I have the verticals diverging slightly which I think emphasises the bulk of the upper floors and massive chimneys.
