Drawing at the Hermitage – Part 2

After a winter of working inside my studio, I just love getting outdoors and drawing or painting from life.  Time pressures and the changing weather conditions creates a certain amount of tension – almost like a game show.  Will he get it done in time?  How bad will the results be?

The other advantage of drawing on location is the people.  I am always surprised by the number of people who will stop and look at your art.  The feedback is always positive, and for someone who works in the isolation of the studio, this is very rewarding.

While it doesn’t show much, here is part two of my efforts to capture the soon to be reduced Hermitage Ruins in Ancaster, Ontario.
