Artist's description:

Part of my 'Cambridge' series of drawings.

One of the most iconic images from Cambridge is the historic Bridge of Sighs in St Johns College, Cambridge, modelled on the Bridge of Sighs in Venice. So many myths, traditions and stories surround this and you will always find tourists clustered together to get a picture with this landmark. It is said that Queen Victoria loved this more than any other structure in Cambridge.

This is a charcoal and graphite drawing with a watercolour wash on heavyweight smooth acid-free watercolour paper. I sketched it from life on a beautiful day, albeit a little overcast, and the rain threatening to come in. It created this magical feel to the place with shadows flirting across the water, breathing a sense of suspense and mystery into the buildings around it, and a muted look to the otherwise vibrant and busy place, almost as if the place had stood still through time.
