example of an cathedral pencil sketch
Claude Buckle made many pencil sketches of the Cathedrals he was going to paint. These sketches are examples of Winchester. Similar sketches would have been made of Bristol. Buckle did not as a rule complete any of pictures in situ, preferring instead to take the sketches back to the studio.
