Here are two more of my sketches from the Sketchbook Project... The first one is a drawing of the barn in which I am blessed to have my beloved studio (in the front part of the barn). I used several pens for this – a black ink pen for the lines, and then two or three brush-tip felt pens in light and dark gray to give a nice sense of tones.
The subject of the second drawing is the direction signs just down the road from my home (I call it "Country Directions"). I love these signs, some so worn over time you can hardly see the names or addresses. I love living in a rural neighborhood....
