On Topsham Quay
We are lucky with the weather, which for the most part stays dry, with just one shower blowing through at the end. See my last sketch with all the raindrops on it!
Topsham is a great place for sketching and you can see lots of pictures where ever you look. It’s amazing how although we are all in the same place, different things catch our eye and inspire us.
Whilst going between everyone I managed two sketches one of Topsham Canal Lock and Cottage (above.) Which is watercolour washes with a watercolour black pencil added into the washes, whilst they are still wet. The paper was very thin so it has ‘cockled’ rather a lot. But as I’ve been saying today ‘it’s only a sketch’ so don’t worry.
and here’s a link for their friendly art society: ‘Otter Vale Art Society‘
