City of York

Back in June I was lucky enough to be taken on a family holiday to the city of York.  It was a great opportunity to try some sketching of some amazing architecture and sights. I also had my first attempt at painting a little watercolour postcard which I am pleased to say made it intact to my Sister and Brother-in-law.

I was very grateful to my folks for this opportunity to have a relaxing break, a few cream teas and plenty to see and draw. Some of these were done very quickly as there was not always a comfortable spot for my folks to sit whilst they patiently waited for me while I sketched.
