Wheal Coate Mine 2

6"x6" Lumocolour pencil and permanent pen

I photographed this in black and white, but the mist had all but drained away the colour from the scene anyway. I could have spent much longer sketching here in monochrome. The shapes and angles had so many possibilities. I had to content myself with this sketch and a number of reference photographs
