Sledmere House, walled garden approach path, on a grey October day. Free pen and ink download.

Quick pen and ink sketch approx 11 x 14
As above with a simple wash added.


Tuesday Oct. 6th 2015
The weather has been wet.
Lots of rain over the recent days making painting en plein air difficult, or rather impossible for me as I do not use an umbrella. Today we had a window of opportunity, dry  weather was promised, so we set off for Sledmere. Still feeling exhausted mentally with the on / off feelings of anticipation then anxiety over the decision to buy or not to buy an old vintage car. Decided not to buy.
So, at Sledmere, after some breakfast we wandered down the drive to the point where the path approaching the walled garden takes off. I thought a quick pen and ink sketch of the path and distant gate would compliment the series of walled garden paintings done in late summer. My intention is to have an exhibition next year featuring walled gardens. The autumn colours are really beginning to develop. Lots of reds in the hedgerows and golden yellow and orange patches on the beech trees.
