Several years ago I did a block print of one of the more prominent farms in Danville. It was a winter scene looking up from down the hill with all of the connected and adjoining buildings at the hilltop. It’s a very picturesque setting and when I went out on Thursday to do a sketch, I thought it might be an excellent subject for a more close-up view of the barn. It was a beautiful day and the owners very graciously let me spend my morning doing the drawing on the lawn (even thought they were expecting guests at their farm B & B later on). The barn sketch was done on a two page spread in a 10.5″ x 8.25″ Global Art Hand•Book Watercolor Journal using two American Journey synthetic brushes, a 3/4″ flat brush and a #12 round. I used a Platinum Carbon Pen and Daniel Smith Extra Fine Watercolors.
