Roussillon ochre mine entrance

roussillon ochre mine entrance (watercolour and pencil 18cmx12cm)

Another fast little response to something that interested me.  It's a rickety old gate at the entrance to an abandoned ochre mine.  I am always attracted to improvised structures that feel like sculptures - deliberately made, but the function lost long ago.  And, of course, such a subject is full of potential for interpretation as metaphor.
