Yesnaby cliffs sketch June ’23

Here is the sketch I made on the spot at the top of the cliffs in Orkney. It was such a dramatic surprise coming to the edge of the cliff from the carpark. I knew straight away that I wanted to draw them. I used soft pastel and pencil for this. It was this sketch that I used for my recent diptych shared on this blog using dye and stitch on canvas as well as some oilbar.
