Sketches for the next painting - John Harvey Tavern, Lewes

I have wanted to paint the John Harvey Tavern for some time. I kept on wandering round to it, and looking, but not really feeling it.
Then, the Harvey's Dray started making deliveries and I knew this was just what I needed!
So here is the first sketch...but it is still a bit, still.
Then I started thinking about what goes on at the pub. Lots of music...and then of course, Morris dancers!
Now it's happening! Music, dancing, jingling bells and beer! I enjoyed sketching this, and it looks much happier!

Off to the heavyweight paper now... time to draw it out again!
