Drawing at Bumble Hole

On Saturday morning, I went down to Bumble Hole nature reserve, my little local spot of sanctuary, took a few more photos and did some sketching.

We approached from a new side, and saw this beautiful metal sign, surrounded by wonderful wild flowers.  I had forgotten to put any crayons in my little art kit, so I couldn’t do a rubbing, something which needs to be rectified.

I love the beautiful curvy bridges:

So I drew them, mostly without taking the pen off the paper, after the Cas Holmes day school. It was surprisingly enjoyable!

There was a massive gaggle of goslings with their proud mum and dad paddling along:

This beautiful little path was new to us, like a wonderful green fairy path.

Leading us to a lovely wild meadow, with a dragonfly and some butterflies floating over.

And this lovely view of Cobb’s Engine House:

Which I had to sketch:

Another lovely view of the engine house:

And a beautiful view of the canal. For something which is stereotypically straight, there are lots of lovely curves!

I’ll post close up pictures of the sketches soon.
