Jesus College


I was all set to go sketchcrawling yesterday (it was the 13th annual worldwide sketchcrawl). In the end, I only managed to get one done, as I was called home! Never mind, it was a bit chilly anyway. This is the entrance to the Principal's Lodgings in Jesus College, Oxford. I think this part of the College is 17th century; the canopy over the door is quite unusual. An interesting feature of Oxford Colleges is that the head of the College is required to live in. The accommodation is quite sumptuous, of course, but students aren't always the quietest of neighbours!

Lucky you, living in such a beautiful, sketchable place. I have visited Oxford only once and enjoyed every minute of the visit.

Great sketch for Sketchcrawl. I hope that we see more of them soon.

Thanks very much. I hope to be getting out to do more when it gets a bit warmer! Snowing here today (brrr!).
