Found my way again

20 x 16 canvas Elvet Bridge in Durham City

Started with random lines with blocks of burnt sienna and yellow ink.
Image added not following drawn lines with black waterproof pen .
Texture added with a small roller with flat elastic bands covered in burnt sienna ink to give random marks in the foreground, the houses and the tree behind the building.
Ink added with my finger under the arches and soften by pulling down.
Some of the lines reinforced with a thicker black pen.
Happy with the result and enjoyed painting it but I think it needs some transparent coloured washes which will probably ruin it but its worth a try.
