My last day on the island of Sark. Here are the three finished paintings begun in the previous posts.

My stay on Sark continuous. Sark has only just become a democracy. Before Sarks first democratic election, taking place earlier this year, it was a self governing feudal state. In the feudal system the only people with a vote or say in how the island was run were land (tennement) owners. The Seigneur was the head of the island taking a share of all land sales. The only person above the Seigneur, in the old feudal system, being the Queen of England. In this drawing you can see the Seigneurs house in the back ground. I will add colour in the next couple of days.

Sark is a small pin cushioned shaped island in the English channel, with a population of only 500 people. Sark has no cars, street lights or tarmacked roads and is even self governing. The only motorised vehicles on the island are tractors which are something of a status symbol. The residents get around on bicycles or by horse and cart. This ink drawing depicts the Seigneurie Gardens which are the islands main tourist attraction.
