Finished Leesburg Street

Finished, or at least finished enough for a sketchbook. I laid in some more watercolor washes then switched over to casein for the leaf pile, stray leaves, and to add some interest to the big bright tree. Casein is still very new to me, so I was just using it to add opaqueness. Looking forward to trying it exclusively on another scene.


Awaiting finishing touches and a signature


I was excited to get the top of the weathervane on this morning. It’s on the top of a building in Leesburg called the Carriage House, which I think is a very cool private residence. There’s something compelling about weathervanes, maybe that they make concrete and visible something as vague as wind.

Just letting it dry and I will put a signature on it and scrape out a few highlights.
