100123 Castle Howard
100123 Ionic Column
Trying out ‘typical Liz sketches’ in a moleskine sketchbook – these were surprisingly fun to do – watercolour does have the weirdest relationship with the paper. It seems that it just sits on top the first brush stroke – but the second soaks in… I think that is what is happening but I will have to experiment some more to see if this is really the case.
By the way – Castle Howard. (yet again!)
BTW2 – I have stuck an extra page on either side to get more of a sense of the scale of the building – maybe I needed a third or a fourth.
BTW3 – I did this while sitting at T2 tearoom today drinking Monk Pear tea.(tea with bergamot, sweet pear and jasmine – can’t have it everyday…but felt like something florally)
