Sketches From The Old Palace, Ely



In between painting my 18x24 inch plein air acrylic of the Palace rear entrance I managed to fill a few pages in my large moleskine watercolour sketchbook.




The Palace has it's very own chapel and so many other interesting views and corners, one could spend a month there gathering interesting sketches and paintings.



After a long day, Joannie and I packed up our materials and walked over, past the Cathedral, for a well earned Italian meal, which was delicious.

Thanks pal for putting me in pride of place at the top - All your sketches make a memory provoking post. By the way, did you see how clever I had been editing my blog and adding the labels listing. ?

Gorgeous, gorgeous sketches - and having met Joan, I can well picture her at that easel in the first one! Wonderful economical use of watercolour in these pages. And so strange to think that you were just 4 minutes' walk away!

So disappointed Emma that our trip to Ely coincided with birthday girl's special day and we were destined not to meet up this time round. Maybe during the exhibition weekend in November - yes?
