Sketching along the canals of Birmingham

Pencil, pen, watercolour 



Today I went on a course run by the RBSA and taught by artist, Wayne Attwood. We walked along the canals, stopping to draw as we went. I saw lots that I’d like to back and draw in the future. There’s a lot of machinery to look at and try to understand that makes drawing the canal very challenging. The atmosphere was lovely – boats going along, people and their dogs, and we were very lucky with the weather.
