Rocks and surf near Bamburgh and Howick, ink and charcoal in an A4 S&B Delta sketchbook
There were lovely long stretches of sandy beach but the rocks here were so interesting to sketch. You can read about the geology here, so different from the rocks I'm used to sketching in Cornwall.
This was done in a cold cold wind with willow charcoal and grey ink, plus some white FW acrylic ink from Daler Rowney. I love that white ink. I like the Herbin Gris Nuage ink to draw with twigs as I was here - but it ruins fountain pens :>(. It was sold as suitable for them too. Ah well, a fountain pen wouldn't have given me the expressive lines that the twigs did :>)
You can see a drawing done with the grey ink using twigs here.
I've now got several projects to juggle. One for an exhibition and others for Christmas .... more to comel
