Today I went back to Union Wharf to look again at the tangle of boats, shining water and expensive loft apartments.
This is a photograph of the sketchbook - the scanner (image below) didn't pick up quite all of the image but shows the colour, composition and marks better.
The book was too small (11 inches square) to fit in the whole of the tangle of boats - there were lots just below that lamp that I couldn't fit in. I need to go back with more time and a larger sketchbook.
There was a colder wind blowing today but I was sheltered from it and it was positively hot in the sun.
I had thought it would be a nice place to live but after sitting there on a weekday with a car alarm going off, another car parking with a loud radio playing and children passing on a walk with their parents from time to time and shouting to each other ..... maybe not. At weekends I bet it can be pretty noisy. I like peace.
I'd like to get out into the countryside now and look at the river with the friends who are doing the project with me but we're all a bit busy at the moment so synchronising a time isn't easy.
