With the days lengthening slightly I’ve been trying to go out and do some more sketching. Here in Oxfordshire its been frosty with freezing nights but also a few days where the Sun comes out. Although far from warm that’s enough for me to go out to explore.
One Oxfordshire village that I’ve drawn before is Stonesfield – I will add some links at the bottom of this post.
This time I went back to a farm track just outside the village and re-drew a panoramic landscape.
Here is my view in late afternoon sunlight.
My sketch of the above…
With the Sun going down and the shadows beginning to stretch out it was time to go home. I later added some watercolour. Here is a cropped view.
Comparing this with my earlier post – ‘Drawing Stonefield’ – the light is different and the trees have that bare late winter look – though not so much in my watercolour version!
