Very windy last week in Brighton. I sketched the view towards St Peters church before my bag full of pastels was blown away!
After a spot of shopping, I took a walk to Hove on saturday. I stopped and watched the petanque players for a while (although no sketching this time). The Peace statue stands nearby marking where Brighton meets Hove. I sat on a (double sided) bench and contentedly sketched and listened to the conversation going on behind me. I faced out onto the Hove lawns and looked back toward Brighton. It was relaxing observing the buildings that line the seafront and watching the passing traffic. I thought I’d try using my writing pen for the more detailed areas in contrast to the brush pen and pastel. Later, corks started popping when a wedding catering party set up a stones throw away. When the guests arrived, I departed.
