On my way home from work the past couple weeks the sky has gotten stormy around 6 pm. I’ve been looking at this view every night as I turn off the main road to get back to my neighborhood. There seems to be some expanse between the parkway and the river that used to be the residence of someone important (or at least landed) a couple hundred years ago. You can just see the chimney of one of the houses.
I did this rough sketch on toned paper from memory. I used some white prismacolor pencil for some highlights and tree branches. I think I will try some colored pencil more with watercolor for these studies. It seems to have worked out well here. This scene is appealing for some reason. I may be able to work out a better variation with a little more care.
Thanks for reading.
