This is her amazing cornflower blue building with rich tiles all around.
The courtyard is fecund, an oasis in the city.
I did the sketches in a two page spread.
When I do spreads, I usually lay out boxes in my mind’s eye,
then look at possible vignettes to fill them.
It allows me to do wide angles or small details, telling a story.
By the way, after using a 5×8 landscape Hahnemühle Watercolour Book,
I am really enjoying having room to do layouts like this on such wonderful paper.
The book also lays completely open and flat, which I love.
I have a question… when I visit an artists blog I want to see their images big, and so many artists are now making them not much bigger than a thumbnail. How do you feel about this?
I started a Facebook group page (you must join to view) to allow everyone to share their virtual sketches, and also where we will, from time to time, take virtual sketch walks together. Come join us On Facebook if you are inclined!
If you want to know more about what a virtual sketchwalk is review my first post.
There are a few more notes/pointers on our first walk through Laguna Beach, California.
