Last Friday I spent the day with friends, actually I spent the day with my sketchbook drawing their beautiful old house. I sat in the doorway of the garage/woodshed on a pile of wood keeping half an eye on the rain cloud that threatened overhead. Fortunately it didn't rain; I drew all morning and part of the afternoon until I felt it had been drawn to a conclusion. It was really nice sitting there drawing away listening to the conversation of the people working in the garden, and watching the doves alighting of the roof where they nest.
For this drawing I used an A3 sketchbook of off white textured drawing paper using an B4 graphite pencil.
