Applying the lessons

These are my first attempts to practice what I learned from Chris Forsey. The first is a view of the Ch√Ęteau Grounds which is based on source material from the course. The second is from a sketch made on the North Yorkshire Moors.

A mixed media (watercolour, pastel, crayon and ink) rendering of the grounds at L’Age Baston. Done whist the atmosphere and demonstrations were still fresh and able to be brought to mind easily

This view is looking up towards the studio and main house in the background from the side of the swimming pool

A mixed media (watercolour, ink and crayon) of the main street in Lastingham on the North Yorkshire Moors. The preparatory sketching was done after a walk up to Ana Cross when the sun was going down, and with the benefit of reinforcements from Kates Cafe!

This is the view looking up main street from the seats on the green. The sun was about to go down cast shadows of the chimneys on the end walls of the houses going up the hill.
