St. Mary's, Beverley, open day.

Pencil sketch of the east window A4 


Suggestion of colour added
Today was St. Mary's, Beverley, open day and I had forgotten about it. 
I had wanted to do a sketch from the roof looking over to Beverley Minster.
However when in town I saw that the event was taking place and so I rushed home for my sketchpad. I returned for the 1pm tower tour...... 1 minute late..... the tower door was closed, so I wandered round and decided to attempt this picture. It is nowhere near complete of course, a necessity  as time was limited. Sometimes, especially with such a detailed picture one should not try to include too many features as it can appear too busy. I have included the pencil outline for you to print off and colour in for yourselves. I want to start plein air painting again soon especially as George ( our Briard ) is now able to go out into the big world.
