My long-time friend is visiting and our favourite thing to do is to spend a few hours sketching. Yesterday was a lovely sunny day, so we parked the car on a side street of a nearby town and sat, one in the driver’s seat and one in the backseat, each with a good view of this great old Victorian place. This part of the house faced the side-street and was attached, not entirely seamlessly, to the large square two storey main house which faced the main street. I was initially attracted to the garage doors with their diamond windows which must date from the 1940’s or earlier. I didn’t even note the street, so will go back to see if I can learn a little bit more of the history of this classic.
I’ve just begun a new sketchbook and this one is a Pentalic Aqua Journal. I like the paper very much, but after using the Large Portrait Hand.book which is just a little larger and oriented the other way, I felt space was tight on the page. I need to get back to working a little smaller.
