'Waggoners Wells' Sketch 7x9"

It was such a sunny day I had to get out and enjoy it. I didn't have the energy to do a painting after teaching this mornings class so I thought I do a sketch in preparation for a painting later.
Waggoners Wells are down the road from us, some lovely reflections in the 3 ponds there. 
I liked the wooden old bridge and shapes of the silhouetted trees. I drew it in a charcoal pencil which is great for dense darks and not to fine details. I will definitely go back and paint this scene.

  1. Thid id one of my 'new favourites'! The charcoal give it another feel. Which is different to colour. Colour can sometimes distract you from the subject and detail. Please do more of these. Not saying I want you to be tired, but trying different mediums is good?
