Drawings during the lockdown

Staithes composite drawing is taken from individual photos square on to each building and being such a narrow street I could not see the roof lines. This information I gleaned from photos taken from high points around the village. Also useful was Google street view who had a backpack camera walk through the village as part of the Cleveland Way. This is in an A2 Sketchbook which I cut in half lengthways.
