Pen, charcoal and coloured pencil.

Two rectangular drawings placed side by side both in portrait orientation. The drawing on the right is looking up Holecroft Street, towards the George Hotel. The narrow street with tall buildings either side give a slight claustrophobic feel to the scene, the dark street leads towards the light of the George Hotel. The drawing on the left is looking at the backs of the buildings at the top of Clayhanger Street. Part of the scene is in shadow, part in light. The backs of the buildings are made up of various geometric shapes, a single telegraph pole, just off centre connects the light, shade and shapes together. Both scenes are drawn in a quick, loose, free way to give a feeling of energy. The scene is coloured and shaded with charcoal giving a sepia tone to the image. Green and yellow pencil pick out weeds and yellow lines on the road.
