I had previously sketched this before our trip abroad but didn’t have time to add colour. So today I made a bit more of a painting of it.
On my first attempt it had rained and I abandoned it. But leafing through my sketchbook pages I’d see this one inked out and regret not completing it. I used only the Schmincke Horadam paint tin and Escoda & Rosemary brush, sat in the sunshine and got to work. I was so in the zone I neglected to take progress photos, please forgive this but I’m quite pleased with the result. I am especially happy with my shadows under the roofline of the building on the left (our house) and I was going to wimp out of adding detail to the bench but I was glad I did because it seems to add something.
