The Black Boy

Probably not what you were expecting... The Black Boy is a 16th century public house in a village called Oving, in Buckinghamshire, UK Although its' name is politically incorrect (!), it has been called that for many years and nobody wants to change it. Did this in about two hours using Rotring Tikky pens on Bristol,board. 16 x 12". Getting back in to art after a long absence.

Re: The Black Boy

Ooooh - that's a nice quick sketch!
I like the broken lines which ell us exactly what somethng is without it domineering tthe work - puts the church beautifully into place and allows the pub to shine!

A great sketch Andrew.

Once termed "black boys" in Australia, now called grass trees are little black stumps with long grass spines coming out of the top. Politically corrected.
