THE FIVE ALLS, Benwick, Cambridgeshire. UK



The Five Alls Are:
I govern all. -I pray for all. - I plead for all. - I fight for all. - I pay for all


The Five alls is the only remaining pub in Benwick and was the focus of my trip yesterday morning. I parked my truck at the top of Skeifs Row, facing the pub, and sketched it in my large watercolour moleskin sketchbook.

That's an unusual name for a pub...never come across that before. Very nice sketch. It was interesting to read about your sketching kit in the last post...thanks for sharing that.

I like how you sketched this! And i enjoyed reading the funny story about the name of the pub!

Linda said...

Great painting! Great pub! You really have a way of making buildings so warm and inviting.

Joan said...

Nice job on this! Places like this have such character, and you did a lovely job on it.

I really enjoy seeing town structures drawn by someone creative who comes across them and sees their intrinsic aesthetic...their 'aura'...and takes the time to capture it. Thank-you.

Now...what about the truck? When do we get a look at the truck?!
