A mixed bag of activity today as I continued my work at Elsecar Heritage Centre. I spent a lot of time based at the Beam Engine site, with several breaks in activity as I swapped hats and became 'tour guide, to a number of interested and enthusiastic visitors. More drawing, both digital and pen on paper, and some fantastic steam powered spiders drawn by Jacob! Here is a link to the 'making of' the painting above.

Here are the pictures:
