Sketchbook Sunday





These are my sketches from a sunny but windy morning with the local USK group.
The first is an abandoned ceramic works which I sketched sitting on the side of a busy road.  Lorries and cars hurtled along but I always enjoy sketching these types of buildings so didn't notice.










The  above park is nearby, called 'Acqua dei Corsari' which means pirate's water, legend has that pirates were saved by a fresh water spring in the area.
We sat overlooking the sea and ancient watch tower in an amphitheatre built by the local council a few years ago in an effort to give some life back to an area ruined by industry and pollution.  The whole area is now sadly overgrown and desolate once again.

Lucky you to be able to get out and sketch already. Too cold here. Love your sketching style. Have fun.
