Sketching shops on the Cowley Road, east Oxford

The Cowley Road in east Oxford has a colourful mix of eateries, convenience stores, charity shops and pubs – and is a good spot for an occasional bit of urban sketching.

Although the buildings here are a little rundown, there are still some interesting buildings-if you look. Setting up opposite a row of eateries this was my view…

…and here is a scan of my initial drawing.

I later decided to add some simple watercolour – here’s the result.
