York, England




I had a chance to spend an extra day in York, a wonderful walled town in northern England. The York Minster is the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe and certainly one of the most beautiful. It was cold and windy, but still a great time sitting and sketching. Sketches in ink and water color on a small 5x7 sketchpad.

The rough of the tower was painted direct with no drawing as an experiment

Thanks, these were exercises in leaving stuff out. Fun sitting on benches in cold windy England and soaking in the scene.
