Don Donovan's World - Church Detail, Dover, England

Ramblings of a much published New Zealand author - 07 October 2012

Leaves From My Sketchbooks. 49. Church Detail, Dover, England

This is another of those sketches done from the passenger's seat of the car while somebody goes shopping. The sketchbooks are in the glove compartment with the pen and ink. You balance the ink bottle on the gear box cover and pray that it won't slide off.

Although it's a small piece I see that I put decent effort into this because the random rubble fabric of the church wall is as fascinating as a complex mosaic. The masons must have gone half mad trying to fit all the blocks together.
