It’s been a while since I posted drawings of Vermont. In looking at my past drawings of various Vermont towns, I realized that one of my favorite barn drawings, from Johnson, had not been posted on the site yet. There’s also a newer drawing from Chester that was done very quickly (45 minutes) just a few weeks ago. It’s often the case that the backs of buildings are more interesting for drawing than the front facades so I went around to the rear of a few varied structures on Main Street in Chester and came up with this grouping. I thought the two drawings, old and new, would make an interesting pairing. Both are done with pen and ink and watercolor in 5″ x 8″ Pentalic Aqua Journals.
