With Urban sketchers in Charterhouse Square just west of The Barbican. Clearly an attractive location as we had something above 60 together to enjoy high heat, bright sunshine and the run in of the Royal Fly past (Trooping The Colour day). I knew Florin Court would be testing as being so well known if not precise, although freehand it would scream 'wrong'. Careful counting and measuring...and Monsieur Poirot I sensed put in an appearance...
It was blowing so hard our flight from Land's end was delayed a day. Watercolour wins in the open air but not when its travelling at 40 mph so planned sketches/paintings of Penzance harbour were abandoned but we did get some sunshine on St Mary's - enough to grab 3 studies.
Curiously but not planned the two smaller ones from positions directly opposite each other.
