Brighton Pier

Brighton Pier

Nice little sketch Shirley. I've been to Brighton once - just recently and it was most enjable.

Great drawing, Shirley. Totally captures the feeling of the seaside promenade. Good perspective as well.

Great atmosphere without fuss...rather like dropping in on a 'visual' conversation.

great little sketch Shirley you could divide it and its two sketches either way I like it , its lovely

Thank you very much, Frank, Thea, Roger and Dennis. Much appreciate your kind comments. (I think, Dennis, my photo looks like two pics because the light fell more on the left hand page. It is hard to get the book to lay open and take a pic. :-) )

Smashing sketch Shirley. I sketched it from the beach. When we awalked on the pier it was very crowded, you were lucky.

Brilliant sketch

A really lovely piece, Shirley. Love the composition and the variety of marks and lines, as well as the tonal work.

Thank you very much, Derek, Jamie, and Seok. That is very kind. Derek, it got very busy towards the end of the sketch, and I was wondering how to see what I was doing.

Beautiful work here, well done.

A lovely, interesting sketch Shirley! Full of life!

Fantastic sketch Shirley

Hang on Studio Wall

Nice morning on the pier today. An exhibition of lovely photos going up behind me, pictures of dancers and dancing of various sorts.
