ELY, Cambridgeshire. UK



I returned to Ely again this week and took lunch in the garden at the Almonry Restaurant where there is a fantastic view of the Cathedral and other beautiful architecture. From my table I could see this cluster of buildings clearly.
Time was limited during my visit but I am pleased to have captured at least one quick sketch in my large moleskin sketchbook.

This is beautiful. Not only is it a great sketch, but I just love the building. I love architecture and would love to see this building in real life. I need to travel more. :)

Each time I visit your site, I am amazed at your ability to accurately portray perspective and architecture and illustrate them in such a visually pleasing way. I find myself returning repeatedly! Would you be so kind as to allow me to provide a link to this site for my family and friends to check out?

What a lovely view! I love building like this with stonework. They always look so interesting. You did a great job on this!! I hope it's OK if I list you in the "links" on my blog.

Terrific sketch, Anita. The brush pen gives a lovely contrast of soft foliage to the old stone.

Thankyou Laser. Ely has some gorgeous architecture, we are lucky to have quite a mixture here in the Fens.

Thankyou Robyn!
It was such a quick sketch, time was VERY limited, that I felt I could cover more ground with the brush pen on the foliage...I am so pleased you feel it worked ok!
