Sketching in a canoe

Last Friday it was my birthday! To celebrate we hired a canoe and went down the River Wye from Glasbury to Whitney. 
We took lots of snacks, and the spaniel and it was a lovely stretch of river. The wind was with us so it was very easy going. So easy that I managed to fit in two quick sketches.

This first one (above) was drawn with 2B graphite stick. Although we were moving slowly the scenery constantly changing made it an interesting challenge to try and capture quickly.

This second one I used a black fine-liner, a grey brush pen and a black brush pen.
