Rural Farm Scene
Back to drawing again after creating the Free 7-day Timed Sketching Video course. Be sure to check out the course if you want to quickly improve your sketching and drawing skill level.
This scene is from an oil painting found online and interpreted in pencil. I really enjoy scenes like this which eliminate detail and allow the viewer to subconsciously fill in the blanks. One can be loose and abstract with the pencil and not have to worry with precision except where hard edges are a concern. Makes for a really immersive sketching session😉.
I also like the 11”x14” format. I use the Moleskine A3 sketch pad and mask the paper down to the desired size. A little tip: The paper is sensitive to top layer peeling when removing tape. So use a “delicate surface” masking tape like Frogtape Yellow. You still have to be careful and pull the tape away from the image at an extremely low angle.

Wow that’s a beautiful sketch! The contrast between building and landscape and sky is gently stark. It pulls you in! A lot of depth. I see images within the images ie shapes like animal figures in the tree and sky!
I bet you enjoyed this one 😃☺️
Yes Roisin I did have fun on this one😉. The interesting thing is that I didn’t intentionally make specific marks. I just followed my thoughts from second to second and let the pencil work. That of course after intentionally laying in light guidelines for all the shapes😉. Thanks so much for leaving your kind words!
