Tales from the riverbank

It’s the annual Boat Race tomorrow along the Thames so it seemed a good opportunity to go and draw at some point along the route.  I chose Barnes, spending a really lovely afternoon sketching the river and some of the neighbouring buildings in a very well-heeled part of town.  When the rowers from Oxford and Cambridge pass under Barnes Bridge, they will be almost at the end of their 6.8km battle which has been taking place between the rival universities since 1829.
