Day 557: Old Mill, Upper Slaughter

Day 557: Old Mill, Upper Slaughter


Reference image: Pinterest linkie!

So for yesterday I decided to try and sketch this lovely little water mill in Upper Slaughter (yes that is actually it’s name. God know what’s happened here to give it this name. I’m hoping it just had a lot of Slaughterhouses or something like that). Anyway I really liked the photo and the at the waterwheel was attached to these lovely old factories for decided to sketch it.

I also really happy with the way this came out. Not entirely sure why as some of my others have been a lot more refined but this is one of my favourites that I’ve done recently (maybe even for a long time). I think its the fact that I actually managed t get some definition between the different arts of the structure despite the actual tones not being that different from each other.

I also really like the sky in this despite it being done pretty crudely. Will definitely have to try this way of sketching a bit more in the future.

Till then!
