Sketching Faringdon part 2

In my last post I was drawing part of this old coaching town’s historic core from a bench in the Market place. Yesterday I went back to do some more drawing while the Sun was still shining and this post shows my progress with this so far.

This is pretty much as far as I got with my initial drawing…

I settled in to continue drawing the buildings to the left and also to include The Bell Hotel.

It took a while. My basic approach was to continue to fill out my initial drawing and then add a second A3 sheet in-situ to add on and draw The Bell Hotel – a nice old coaching hotel. Here are some more photographs…

By now the day was changing, with the earlier sunshine replaced by cloud and the temperature dropping again – time to move on again.

Later I had time to put my two drawings together and go over some of the detail. What I ended up with is the drawing below…

And with a little more detailing this is what I’ve ended up with (below). This however might not be the final version – as I now feel the temptation to break out the technical pens and do a little more.
