Stairs and Landscaping


The home of my sister's friend who hosted her birthday party was incredibly landscaped! I took photos to use as teaching tools for my students, but I had to sketch these steps! The scan is a bit 'greener' than it is watercolored ... but I just fell in love with the play of foliage against stone!

Gosh, I think I miss just a day and come back and you've added several new drawings and sketches! These are all lovely. I would never have thought to sketch the grasses, but this is great. You did a really good job with it. Soon, very soon, I'm going to have a go at sketching Grace from a photo I have of her smiling. I'm taking inspiration from you!! Love this sketch of Nick. Such a cute pose.
