This week I’ve been back to draw more of the village of Stonesfield, Oxfordshire.
Stonesfield is about 8 miles NW of Oxford and so is quiet enough for me to enjoy getting out in the country again. Last week I did a post of a couple of drawings in the village of ‘The Old Bakehouse’. This time, having done some previous reconnoitering, I decided to try a landscape view from just outside the village. Setting up on a farm track, I drew a series of smaller sections of this landscape, gradually joining them together. Like most en plein-air it was again something of a learning experience as I went along.
Here is a photograph of the view.
And here are some photos of my drawings…
Here is my finished sketch.
Some days later, with some new watercolour paper, I decided to turn this into a series of new drawings and then add watercolour. The results are below.
Drawing and then watercolouring a smaller section…
And my finished landscape view of Stonesfield.
