Sketching the windmill


Hey it’s Springtime!

A lovely day brought out lots of visitors to the town. I felt I should go draw. The windmill shouldn’t be too challenging to sketch, I thought! You can see how wrong I was.

I hid in a shelter with people eating fish and chips on the other side of it and I drew what I thought I saw. It’s a classic mistake to draw what you don’t see, to imagine what’s there – or so I hear…

I’ve photographed the sketch and some of the scene.

Oh well. Onward and upward.
