Ten minute sketch while watching #skylandscapeartistoftheyear, Herstmonceux Castle. Very quick sketch!
Tonights landscape artist of the year was from Gateshead in the North East of England. The subject was the Millennium bridge. Nicknamed the winking bridge as the structure tips so the curved support moves downwards while the bridge part lifts upwards.
Instead of looking for an image on my phone I watched the programme and glimpsed various views of the bridge so it’s quite sketchy and I used up the green grey acrylic paint that I’d been using as a base coat for a painting.
Sky landscape artist of the year is on again so I quickly found Plymouth and Smeatons Tower that is featured in this weeks programme. The tower was a lighthouse built out in the sea. But it was rebuilt when an automatic one took over. This drawing took me ten minutes.
