Day 15
A mixture of cycling and walking today. I walked round to the back of the old brickworks, thinking I might draw the kilns or chimney but then realized I had just 10 minutes before I had to be at my mother's place, not enough time to do them justice. I was struck by the sense of being locked out of the interesting historical site and loved the texture of the tumbledown wire fence - which I finished drawing while I waited to collect Finnian from uni. having arrived a half hour early by mistake.

I like that barbed wire. I keep on seeing things in your drawings that remind me of similar things here that I could draw. The word verification word is lcylivty which sounds to me like some kind of cycling activity

I love the contrast between the wire fence and the modern gate. Awesome sketch!!

This is such an unusual composition - and it works so well - and if you did it out big and entered it in competitions it's probably win prizes! So there!
