Squint And Draw

20 Jul

Slip Bridge

Husb and I took a stroll along our local beach this evening, the weather was gorgeous, warm and sunny. I sat and drew the old Slip Bridge with charcoal into my Khadi sketchbook. The light was extreme and threw the bridge into sharp black and white so I squinted my eyes and tried to draw the light and shade, what I was actually seeing rather than trying to draw a bridge. The result is simplistic but dramatic with strange shapes where the symmetrical arches should be.
