Tag Archives: Nottingham Castle Rock

A Couple Of Quickies

20 Oct

 

Husb and I had a grand day out today, with a roadtrip to Nottingham via Hay-on-Wye and Coventry. As we were sightseeing, I didn’t want to spend too much time sketching so I set myself time limits. Nottingham has an amazing geological rock formation that has been there for about 400,000 years. It’s called Castle Rock – it’s a large rock with a castle on it :).  The sandstone is very soft and over the years people have carved caves into it. I spent 8 minutes scribbling a section of it which contains three caves at the bottom.

Then we called into Coventry on our way back home. Close by the magnificent new cathedral and the old cathedral ruins is a small street called Cuckoo Lane and I scribbled this little medieval timbered house in 5 minutes. Both are in my purple silk recycled sari sketchbook with my Pilot V5 pen. And now we’re home and chilling out. Lovely.
