Trees by the Riverbank

Charcoal on Paper

So this is a rough Charcoal sketch based upon a peaceful little place that feels like an oasis, starkly contrary to the bustling crowds of Canterbury High Street only a stones throw away.
It should be noted that I didn't actually draw this on location as it were, but rather in the studio from a combination of memory and a few sketches I had already completed, which is why, having been back to te place with the sketch it doesn't quite match up in many of the details. However, it is still a piece I am fond of and am also pleased with as it captures something of the mood of the place.
