tt races sketch ramseyThis is the first of three sketches done last week at the Isle of Man TT motorcycle races. This was not a painting trip - it was a few days of fun with my sons on our bikes. But, as always, a small sketchbook is always tucked away in a pocket or - as in this case - a pannier.

Sketched first with water soluble neocolour crayon, I then went on top with a thin felt-tipped pen.

The view is looking back at the exit from Ramsey's Parliament Square where the riders accelerate up the slight incline to the next bend. About 90mph roughly.
