Bath Experience I, 2009

My first time at Bath! I was more than impressed! It seems they planned the whole city to look like ancient Rome. One thing stood out to me and that was the colour of the buildings were all faded yellow orche. I only spent a day and a half and I couldn't stop taking pictures, that I will have to develop into paintings, as the whole city is just a painters' delight!

Here (below) are two rough pen and inks I did of the Roman Baths and Kingsmead Square. I really enjoyed the experience, hope to go back there!

The unpredictable weather almost spoiled my plein air experience, I 'll share in later posts.

So nice, Adebanji. Sketches are great and love the photo of you doing em. I envy your proximity to some of the places in England I've longed to visit and paint (ruins on Salisbury Plains, Glastonbury, etc.) Maybe one day. Keep up the marvelous work.
