From the Sunday 15th June - Sketching Group Session in the Botanic Gardens

Will probably try to finish this one off next Sunday. The bridge and general busyness lets it down currently but will sort it out later. It's very simple - I'm trying to reduce the scene down so there is very little detail just a collection of shapes and colours that hopefully resolves into a recognisable scene. It's sketching with paint and then deciding what to leave in and what to discard to make a balanced and hopefully interesting compostition. The one on the right is the earlier version thanks to Gearoid for that pic. Looking at the two together I nearly prefer the earlier compo - certainly the water area is more calmer and the bend in river better defined.
