Farm Buildings, Trumpington, Cambridgeshire

3"x5" water-soluble crayon and permanent ink marker

I’ve passed these buildings on and off for many years and have never stopped to draw them until today. Why, I don’t know because they are lovely. Perhaps it was because the low winter sun this morning was catching and modelling the roof surfaces in a particularly interesting way.

I love this way of sketching, putting in the hatching first, smearing it with a bit of “lick” and then adding definition and detail with fine permanent marker.
