A quick sketch done between meetings while in New Jersey this week. There are beautiful homes in the historic neighborhood along Ridgewood Avenue in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. I sketched this partial view of a stone home from my car on this hot and humid day. In this sketch I laid down the watercolor first and then added the line work after. The watercolor became muddy from overworking. Oh well, that is what a sketchbook is for. Holbein watercolors and Faber Castell Pitt pens in a Stillman and Birn sketchbook.
The watercolor treatment in the stonework area is especially effective. It’s a beautiful piece.
