Shadow come and gone

Here’s the second of the two sketches I did yesterday. Marc and I stopped here because the late afternoon sun was casting a beautiful shadow of the tree on this little house. We didn’t have much time so I started to draw and as soon as I took out my watercolours it became overcast. Completely dull. I mixed up a wash and then the sun came out again — for about a minute and then it was gone for good. So this is my fleeting impression of what the tree shadow looked like.

Marc’s sketch was completely different. He draws on a much larger sheet and his drawing had practically the whole street in there. It was a gorgeous start and I am very curious to see what it will look like when he posts it here.

    The sketches are so beautiful, the way you make the ordinary look so lovely; it is inspiring-makes me want to try to using watercolours.
