Old Dartmoor Barn, Near Haytor


I shall probably do a watercolour in the New year of this scene as its grabbed me for a while now. It has an old rusty tin roof, which shouts out in a green landscape!!!

Lovely simple sketch and Happy Xmas to you too David

Will make a lovely painting David.

Excellent sketch , and I’m looking forward to seeing a painting . I agree re the pencil choice by the way , especially when out and about no need to carry a whole bundle.

A good sketch and look forward to the painting, David! Happy Christmas!

Like the simplicity of your sketch David. Wishing you both a Merry Christmas & a Happy painterly New Year.

Stunning in its simplicity. I love how you brought out the layers and perspective with such economical use of lines and marks. Beautifully done, and Merry Christmas, David.

Can’t wait to see your watercolour of this David. I know it’s going to be fabulous. Happy Christmas to you!

Thank you everyone for your very kind comments and again , A VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS Speak next year

9" x 7" B4 Pencil sketch done while i was waiting in the car for Liz , my wife who was at an appointment in Boots in Exeter. The image was on my phone from a walk some time ago in the summer. I have simpified the scene by removing some of the trees surrounding the barn. I find a 4B pencil a good all round pencil, instead of using say an HB for distance , a 2B for mid distance and 4B for foreground. HAPPY CHRISTMAS everyone
