Southend Pier
We took a trip on the train to the end of the pier today and this is a little sketch I did from the cafĂ© looking back down the pier towards Southend.   I'd quite like to return to the spot (if I could get the same table) and work a bit more out to the sides as there were some nice bits of building to either side.   It was the first time we'd been on the pier since the last time there was a fire there and interesting to see which bits were left and which bits had been re-developed.   I liked this view as it was a bit above the level of the deck so it had a slightly elevated position.

I painted this one from a sketch I did on an early morning visit to the hospital when I was having a few problems with my leg.
