This sketch is on a dark blue coloured paper and I’ve used charcoal & a white chalk pastel. A4 ‘sh.

A beautiful evening, with J & I strolling down the towpath of Exeter’s Ship Canal. Everything is still and dusky, the only thing you can hear is a group of noisy geese who are taking off in groups and heading across the Estuary. We stop at the Turf Lock, for a little sketching, it’s starting to get chilly and the dusk is rapidly turning into night, so I must be fairly quick. The moon is beautiful tonight riding high in the sky, with the water reflecting it’s light.
