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
