This is a sketch of Belcastel in the Aveyron done 20 years ago in July 1994. I'm looking up at the Château de Belcastel from the banks of the River L'Aveyron right next to the bridge over the river (here on the map). It's one of my favourite parts of France.

One of the interesting things about sketches is the way they take you back. I vividly remember drawing the angles of the houses and roofs of the houses very carefully. Plus being intrigued about how to capture the light under the bridge and its reflection in the river.
I think I'll mentally file this away as a 'need to think about working up' folder.
Maybe I need to post some more of my old sketches from 20 years ago?
