Sketches - Newark Park

Last week we visited Newark Park, originally built as a hunting lodge in the mid-1500s. The estate is high up in the Cotswolds with impressive views over the surrounding countryside, steeply sloping gardens and several way-marked woodland walks. 

The strong sun soon moved round to our lakeside picnic spot, but I did manage to get a quick sketch of the 18th Century summer house. My photo provided the reference for the small drawing of the east front of the main house.
