No through road. pen and wash sketch

Lovely scene captured Malcolm

You use the ink so well to describe the wood of the gate and fence Malcolm, pen work lends itself to this subject I find. Uneven lines and broken edges....lovely job!

Thank you Fiona, as I have said before, given the quality of your pen work, your comments are always most welcome.

Smashing sketch to remember by and maybe ask the owners/authorities why it's not PRW

This is a lovely pen and wash Malcolm. Great marks. and I like your greens.

Thank you Carole and Derek for your comments. The greens Carole I mixed as I worked and put them on wet into wet, there are four different shades of green all told even if not apparent. The paints for the greens were Windsor and Newton artists paints, Cadmium Yellow, Naples yellow, Ultra Marine and Cerulean blue with just the tiniest touches now and then of burnt umber and or cadmium red to get the darker touches, may not seem right to others but works for me.

Excellent pen and wash Malcolm, love the drawing and the colours you have used.

Thanks for that David, appreciated.

I found this little gate while walking in the Conistone area of the Lake District, the path was obviously long out of use and had never been a public right of way, but through all the underbrush and fallen trees, there was a tantalizing hint of blue from a tarn, so tempting to push through and explore but resisted the temptation.
