Sky study - Wind W S W

Widgery is well-known throughout Devon for his extraordinary sketch collection - consisting of 500-600 works - which he bestowed upon the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in the occasion of his death. These pencil and crayon sketches (and sometimes even watercolour studies) were done for study as well as for leisure. They range to anything from the Devonshire landscape to studies of light and shadow as well as sketches of a variety of animals. Sometimes he would take his sketches further and flesh them out with oils, to see if they would make a good final product if he were to pursue that subject.
