Its always nice to get out and about with sketchbook and pen. I went up to Seaford Head with Margaret last week, on a beautiful sunny day, and sat at a picnic table drawing the view up the Cuckmere Valley.
The wide-angle camera lens doesn’t do justice to the rolling hills however and has the effect of flattening everything out.
A couple of days later I found myself with an hour to spare in nearby Brighton (while Margaret took t the grandchildren to the cinema) and so sat in the Old Steine gardens and drew a couple of buildings. No time to colour them in, so I did the watercolour painting when I got home.
