Warm sunny afternoon at Whidbey Institute

Just sitting in the sunshine on a wood bench, at the W.I. property, while sketching these old weathered wood buildings was a great way to spend a warm lazy day. The contrast of dark shadows in the bright sun created interesting designs to draw in the sketching compositions. This sketch was done in pen and ink with some cross hatching for varied values in the shadows.

  1. Really great sketch, Lois. Nicely composed with lots of light. Reminiscent of an old masters drawing. Love the simplicity of black and white.
