Rough Sketches of UK Coast

Still playing with the Hero 578 bent nib pen and Lexington Gray ink.  These sketches are quick trying to maintain some free spirit and spontaneity.  I'm still trying to get the hang of using hatching and cross hatching for depicting various values.  It's easier with the finer nibbed pens building up values but I'm determined to keep practicing with the larger nibs and heavier ink flow.  Maybe I'll get better and then again........maybe not :-))

Worked in the Generic 9 x 12 Sketchbook.

From photos of my 2010 UK trip when Terry and I spent two weeks with our friends Clare and Robin.  I so love visiting that country!!
