Drawing in the formal gardens at Blenheim

Apart from an afternoon visiting a recent food festival I havn’t been back to Blenheim Palace for a while. I have however been meaning to go back to do some more drawing and sketching, so today on a cloudy Bank Holiday Monday I decided to give it a go.

Setting my self up in the formal gardens at the end of the day I set to drawing the western elevation of the palace and to include some of the many sculptures in the gardens. In this case that meant a large and impressive (bronze?) horse sculpture included here in my initial drawing. This was a relatively rapid sketch as the grounds were about to close, but maybe I will get to go back and who knows – maybe the Sun will come out?
