LOCAL SKETCHES FOR A SECOND PRINT PROJECT
I've been up the allotments at the end of my lane as I know you can see the village church from there. Unfortunately though, in order to get enough detail of the run of cottages and the church tower, I dont get much in the same view from the allotments to make an interesting composition, so I sketched this shed front and back from another area thinking it might be useful in a final piece of work. ... but then
I saw a lovely patch of cabbages with torquoise netting thrown round on poles. Thats more like it I thought. So I sketched the distant buildings in my moleskin book lovely Anita gave me .. then added the cabbages on the botom half of the page.
Could work but then I spied some geese with runs and sheds and some chickens and photo'd them in case they get added finally. Who knows how it will proceed once I start on my lovely Sanders Waterford 16 x 20 inch water colour paper.
By the way, why has my visitor counter gone back to 3 when it was over 200 earlier in the week???
