Pencil drawing of Lyme Regis Cobb

The Cobb, Lyme Regis

20 February 2021 By ian

This week’s Picture of the Week is this beautifully atmospheric view of one of Dorset’s most famous landmarks. There has been a harbour here in Lyme Regis for well over seven hundred years but the Cobb itself was built in 1824. It’s famous for its starring role in The French Lieutenant’s Woman.

I took the reference photo for this drawing on an exceptionally warm November’s day. There were a lot of people swimming in the sea. You can see the calm sea and the cliffs of the Jurassic Coast in the background.

The original is available to buy at a special price all this week. It’s a special picture that has been exhibited at Bridport Arts Centre. I also have prints and cards available.
