Summer selection

During the summer my friend Pearl and I visit different locations to draw and paint. This summer has been quite wet and cold so it was quite a challenge!
This selection of pictures are pen and wash.
The first picture is located at Nymans a rather nice National Trust property.

We found this location by accident. We had stopped for a pub lunch and low and behold , this wonderful scene behind the pub,allowing the boats to moor up and stop for lunch.

 This is another National Trust property. Batemans - where Rudyard Kippling spent time.

 Wakehurst, Sussex - an important place where seeds from all over the world are stored.

 Sissinghurst, Kent - quirky tower and beautiful gardens.

Finally for this post  - Alfriston , a really quaint village where my husband and I spent a few days of our honeymoon many years ago.
