Summer Sketching: Stone Cottage


Today I'm sharing another study done from a photo.  This is a simple stone structure.  I wanted to practice perspective my recent "Keeping A Watercolor Sketchbook" class.  I was kind of pleased at how it turned out.  I would like to have done it in the field.

I've been using a Stillman & Birn "Alpha" sketchbook lately.  It was not my first choice, I prefer the "Beta", "Epsilon" or "Zeta" books, but I had run out.  I must say, I've been really surprised by how lovely the slightly textured surface is, and how well it holds watercolor washes.  I think I will be using this kind of book again.

This sketch is watercolor and ink.

Enjoy your day. xx
