I have been thinking about drawing this stone mill for many years now and felt it would be interesting to work on now. I haven’t done a stone building in a while and it will be fun to work 0n one again. I played a little with the placement of the covered bridge, moving it a bit to the right. I decided to add some trees and small foliage to the front, rather than leaving the huge lawn that was in the photo. It seemed to want a bit of softening. As I start the inking tomorrow, I may move some of it around or adjust sizes, depending on how it develops.
I’m sorry the photo is a bit dark but I draw lightly in pencil so I can erase it and it is not conducive to photography on the white board. Still, you can get the gist of where the picture is going, which is all I really want at this stage. I probably will use the pastels for the color overlay instead of the watercolor.
