Living in a rural part of the world, I just love to see a red barn. I prefer weathered wood to something newer, and a barn with flowers is even better. Hence, today’s drawing. I’ve not done a lot of landscape work, although I’d like to do more of it. There are so many scenes in the area that would be a joy to sketch or paint.
What I learned:
- Trees in the distance are much harder to draw than photographs make them look.
- Weathered wood may be easier to watercolor than to draw with colored pencil (yes, even with Polychromos!)
- Um, I need to do many more of these before I’ll be happy with how they turn out.
I have to add too that having this blog is kinda like being a little kid and jumping up with a picture to show off. When I release my little pictures out to all of you, I really enjoy seeing which ones you prefer. So far, the ones I like most are the ones you all like best, too. Anyway, it’s a kick, this blogging thing. I start to understand why so many people do it.
Hope to see you back tomorrow with a bird that has special significance for me. Happy Wednesday.
