    I used a bit of spare time on the Friday afternoon before the SAI autumn meeting to have a look around Bath. The Royal Crescent was a challenge; not sure I’ve really done it justice but I prefer older buildings usually.

    Also a challenge was this torch snuffer. I was informed by a passer-by it was used to extinguish lights carried by sedan chair carriers. Its attached to the end of the Crescent I’d just had a go at. By the time my informant had gone and I was happy with the sketch it was getting pretty cool and slightly dark 😯

    Hi Allan
    These sketches are great.
    You’ve taken on two challenging subjects there.
    Think I’d have found something easier!
    How long did they take you?

    I gave myself about 45 minutes I think before I started to think ‘why are you doing this?’ I was distracted by an interested passer-by while drawinug the snuffer so the time is only a guess.

    Before I started I thought sketching the Pulteney Bridge was a good idea but decided against it when I stood in front of it and found it daunting. Ironic really, given what I settled down to do 😕
