Last month I Joined up with the sketch book challenge as I thought it would give some ideas for subjects to keep me going on my personal challenge of a sketch a day, which I've kept up since April last year.
The challenge for this month is close up, so when I was looking back at my photos from Suffolk I remembered this water aid clock that I'd seen on Southwold pier, this is how it looked last summer.
And last week it looked like this.
And I nearly got frostbite in my fingers getting this shot.
So sticking to the challenge I thought I'd crop the image to the details I liked best
......and gave it an ink filter in PS just for fun....... I thought it might help me sort out the shapes, when I sketched it, but it didn't and the sketch eneded up like this.
It was fun to do and made me think differently, so thanks to those at the sketchbook challenge.
