England in January

Let me share some sketches from places I went while in England. Despite the severe disruptions of traffic due to snowfall, I did manage to visit family in-country.

The Roman Baths in Bath, where I went for a short walk around the ruins to while away the time until I would be picked up at the station. The ruins of the baths and ancient places of worship are mostly indoors, but with access to the large central bath whereto the volcanic waters from the spring have been chanelled since Roman times:

The baths looked eerily beautiful with the steaming water:

A simple view of the small station, Bath Spa, as seen from the tea house across the street:

And an interior from the super cute tea house:

I’d run off in the snow without most of my sketching materials, so had trouble catching the mood of this place since it wasn’t suited to thick brush pens.

My mother’s cousin is a tapestry weaver and very talented artist, and I got to visit her studio/workshop at her home in Melksham:

You can see more about her work at her website: Kirsten Glasbrook.

I also had the good luck to spend a night at my cousin’s home in the woods outside Bath, where I did a sketch of her wonderful kitchen:

I love this kitchen 🙂

More sketches later, from London and getting about.
