Holkham Hall - 18.10.09


Joan and I spent Sunday at Holkham Hall in Wells-Next-The-Sea, a beautiful palladian style mansion where 'The Duchess' was filmed.

We finished our day with a sketch from a bench looking back towards the Hall. By this time I was so cold that I had very little control over my hand and the pen kept hitting the page and making marks all by itself!



Holkham is a fantastic place. With over 3,000 acres of designated walks, I think it would be impossible to cover all of the beauty it has to offer in just one day and will deffinately return....Perhaps in warmer conditions!

This whole series has brought back memories of holidays with my family. My mum, sister and I spent many days exploring stately homes and often brass rubbing in the vast churches along this coast leaving my father fishing off a rather pebbly beach.I have enjoyed sharing your sketches.

There is nothing like trying to sketch when you're so cold you're shaking!!!! Great sketches!
