Visiting Lincoln

I’m not entirely sure why but I find myself quite taken with this sketch I did yesterday afternoon while visiting Leo in Lincoln:

Drawing

Lincoln Cathedral from the High Street

It was mainly done using the blind drawing methodology – use the pencil to follow the edges of what you see without looking at the paper – with a bit of touching up afterwards to add a few more details. I suppose there is something about the energy and honesty of the lines and also something about the way the stacked clouds echo the street scene below.

I’m not planning to start on it just yet but I can see this one might feed into a future painting.
