On a recent visit to Blewbury, I drew a house on the main through road –The Dower House– the subject of my previous post.
Taking a short walk into the village on quieter roads is a rewarding experience and here you are more likely to meet pedestrians rather than cars. Blewbury has quite a few really nice old cottages and houses – with thatched roofs, half-timber construction, plastered walls and that old building charm.
I have drawn Wayside Cottage before – or rather Wayside Cottage and those adjacent to it, though from a different angle.
Here are some views of these cottages…
… and here is my sketch in-situ and as a scan.
I think this is definitely one to turn into a watercolour and plan to do more painting in the winter, light permitting.
For comparison here is that earlier watercolour of Wayside Cottage from 2019..
