The Toy Makers Cottage

Turns out The Toy Makers Cottage is actually a childcare business! I enjoyed capturing the wysteria over the picket fence.

I'm quite happy with this sketch, but at the end of the day I failed too – failed to capture what is the essence of Arch Hill – the fact that these old houses are clinging to the side of a steep gully! I'll try to get that next time.

I'm drawing lots of these old beauties for the upcoming Past to Present exhibition at Railway Street Gallery from the 16th March through to 3rd of April.
