Dyrham Park

We chose a good day to visit Dyrham Park, near Bath, this week - sunny and not too cold.  I managed a quick pencil sketch of the cascade and ornamental pond, adding watercolour marker back at home.

Pencil, pen and watercolour marker - 5" x 4"

The park is home to about 180 fallow deer.  We took an interesting guided walk through the herd with an opportunity to take some close-up photos of the bucks (the does and juveniles being a little more wary in our presence).  After my journal entry for the day, there wasn't a lot of room left for my deer sketch!
