The Pride of the Union – Pencil

One of the nice things about the fantastic recent weather is to be able to sit comfortably, outside, and sketch. This is a pencil sketch of one of the barges which use the canal near us. Its been converted into a floating restaurant and is based at the Bridge Inn here in Ratho. Its very popular for dining and even marriage ceremonies take place on board. I’ll use this rough sketch to be worked up into a full sized watercolour at a later date.
