Brixham Harbour

I recently spent a fabulous week in the Torbay area and visited the beautiful small town of Brixham with its active fishing harbour. In the harbour is a replica of The Golden Hind, Sir Francis Drakes famous ship. This sketch was with non-permanent ink and a brush with clear water was used to 'pull out' the shaded area's. This is a medium I'm particularly fond of.


  1. Nice work John. I use that method sometimes, it's useful for creating areas of tone isn't it. Did you use a Rotring Artpen?

  2. Thanks Keith. Nothing so posh as a Rotring Artpen - just an ordinary non-permanent fine point by Stabilo, but it works quite well.
