On Saturday Mum and I enjoyed an outing to Melbourne in Derbyshire to visit an art exhibition.
We had a pleasant look around and (as usual) mum got chatting to somebody....and chatting...and chatting. I was happy she was having a conversation with a fellow artist and decided to sneak out and have a quick look around the streets of this pretty and characterful town.
I loved all the interesting angles and wealth of chimney pots, the old bricks and the pretty windows.
The next day, Sunday, was cold and windy and looked like rain. We stayed home and I decided to attempt a drawing of my photo.
First pencil, then pen. Then the really fun part, coloured pencil.
By the evening the picture was almost complete.
Then work got in the way.
Happily today I found the time to add the finishing touches..Ta-Dah.
I added some people and the cat, as I like to see a bit of life in a picture. I think it turned out quiet well to say I don't practice my drawing skills very often. I have to wait for inspiration, and this spot provided me with just that. I'm sure the exhibition contributed too.
P.S. I'm not sure about the strange pigeon on the aerial....it looks like s fish to me :0)
P.P.S. Anybody spot Tom Tit?
