Day 21 - Drawing September
21 September 2014, 22:39

This month I am taking part in a month of drawing, posting images every day. For today's image I was down on the Thames foreshore at low tide, looking up at St Paul's cathedral and trying to depict an interesting composition of the Millennium Bridge. At this angle this wonderful bridge looks as though it's leading straight into the domed cathedral of St Paul's. I drew this sketch on site using sepia ink for speed (as the tide was on the turn) and I picked out details using black ink.

I drew this second sketch sitting under Blackfriars Bridge. I tried to capture the wonderful old disused pillars of the old bridge before the tide came in.
