Path To Patelely Bridge II: The Bridge

 Path To Pateley Bridge, II
11 x 9", pen and ink

There is a beautiful, meandering river called the River Nidd, that eventually winds its way beside the path to Pateley Bridge. Being January, the trees beside it are without leaves but have moss growing up  their trunks. The water is calm and acts like a mirror, reflecting the trees and blue sky. The scene is soothing and peaceful.

The bridge in this sketch crosses over the river leading to an estate which looks more like a small castle. Since I have always been fascinated by bridges and anything that resembles a castle, I will draw the estate next.


  1. loving your sketches, Rita! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. I love this! Love the water! What miracles you work with pen and ink. Can't wait for your next one.

  3. These drawings will be such good memories!

  4. That is so true Megan. Drawing these scenes makes me memorize them - its very similar to a portrait. I have never forgotten the faces of those I have painted.
