After I finished with the snowblower this morning I looked out on a sunny, but cold day. I allowed sloth to overtake me and I decided not to walk to the museum as I normally would. Sketching statues is ok but I confess they don’t call to me as many other subjects might.
I looked out the window and saw this scene and decided to do a quick rendition of it. A few light pencil lines in my Stillman & Birn Alpha (10×7) sketchbook to define rooflines, building edge and a couple lines to indicate where the main tree trunks were done before I turned to my Namiki Falcon with De Atramentis Document ink. According to my wife it looks better than the real thing. I hope she’s right. One thing is certain. This is a good example of how trying to do something quickly and drawing all the bricks is a bad combination (grin).
