La Certosa (coloured pencil and watercolour)
After a couple of sketches from my car in the rain, this is one that I re-did at home and added colour. It's the first page of my new sketchbook, which will be dedicated to places/ scenes near where I live.
I have already sketched this villa from the otherside, see here . It's such a shame to see something so beautiful hidden away behind suburban sprawl. The part I've drawn is the only part you can see, between houses and behind a tall wooden fence.
I love cracked walls, old brickwork and peeling paint, fortunately there isn't a shortage of that around here!
I'm hoping that I will fill my sketchbook fairly quickly as I've got lots of locations in mind.
