FOOTSTEPS, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire. UK



Yesterday morning was spent at 'Footsteps' being pampered then, while I waited for Mum, I borrowed a chair from the waiting room and sat on the opposite side of the road to create the sketch above.

Interesting building, and I especially like the way you painted the bricks. The colors and brush strokes are perfect.

Very nice - I love the way we get a little 10 minute trip to the UK every time we visit your blog - it"'s a wonderful escape from my real life.

I've never been to Chatteris, but it does seem to have everything a girl could want: a cafe, a pub and a place for getting pedicures. My DW would never need to leave!

Lovely sketch; you've captured the brickwork really well.

The color of the masonry of the building and the roof is very nuanced. Well executed.

Thankyou Serena.
Since using my sketchbooks on location, I am beginning to realise just how much we take for granted on a daily basis. You are right, England is beautiful!

Very nice job on the bricks of this building...not overdone. It looks like a wonderful place to pass some time, either inside or outside.
