Sketching of a gate of an abandoned house
This sketching of an abandoned house made some days ago and I forgot about it. So this is also the beauty of opening and reopening the sketch pad: seeing what done and in a certain way, to live again that moments.
I am very attracted from this gate, because it belongs to an abandoned house near the sea (and I say everything) that takes a lot of light on every moment of the day. To enter in this estate there is an old street that with a lot of stones in the middle so to stop any car ,and on the sides there are a lot of agave plants. These agave plants are really big and are also wroth to be sketched later with the entrance. By the way I think i will go there again to do some sketching at the sunset, one day more.
So I decided to go there for sketching in this hot summer and enjoyed a lot. The reasons are that I was in the right mood for sketching was the sound of the waves of the near shores, and there was also a lot of cicadas playing their music . Sitting almost on the ground on a small stone over the street the brings to the opening, fighting against order of ants that were climbing my legs trying to reach my pants. So very funny. I never went out of focus so first I draw it lightly with a pencil and later I went with ink.
So I inked this sketching with my Lamy Safari fountain pen filled with the marvelous Platinum Carbon Ink, and I colored and washed with the Winsor & Newton Artist’s watercolors over the Moleskine Watercolor pocket pad. And finally i gave some touch of light with the White Gelly Roll by Sakura that is a white pigmented pen that well behave on this sketching.
Hope you will like it.
