Drawing on Cleveland Bridge

Cleveland possibly one of Bath's busiest bridges. Nosily look down into sculptor Peter Hayes studio which is situated on the river bank. The first drawing, with the bridge shaking as lorries trundled over, is the usually story. Beginning with belief, a mid point of doubt and a final hoorah. Finish by attempting to depict the sculptor at work in his yard. Somehow the perspective alludes me, as does the fast moving Peter Hayes.

First view down the river (above), soon to be given a wash of colour in the studio.

Looking up the right bank from the bridge, towards the spire of St Swithen's.

Finally the drawing which went a rye. The manic dark patch is where Peter Hayes kept moving.
