Great sketching. Like those "negative" gravestones.

I also love the white stones. Lovely sketch

Thanks everyone. Those "white" gravestones actually looked that way because of the intense sunlight across that region. The high contrast was really the attraction in that view (that and the fact a park bench was conveniently situted!)

Hang on Studio Wall

Beautiful day to be out sketching. Winsor & Newton Promarkers in Hobbycraft Daler Rowney A4 sketchbook. Direct observation. No pencil guide lines; keep it fresh. I posted a second study in the Forum showing how (in my opinion), these markers are a bit intense when using colour. (c. ian g craig)
