"The Green Mansion in Eureka, CA", Buildings Around the World, Lynn Cohen


I'm pleased that the homework I am doing in Sketchbook Skool in semester 2, "Seeing" is applicable for posting here in our "Buildings Around the World" theme. This was an assignment to lay down a quick wash of watercolor then draw slowly over it, as I've done in the previous two houses I posted here. This one took close to three hours to complete. It's a huge mansion (green) in Eureka, California, where we were this past weekend for a nice relaxing visit. I drew it from the photo I took of it. Ann is in the same class. I hope she'll post some of what she's doing there as well.

  1. I love that technique! It was seeing your work at the skool Facebook page that helped me to find this site. I cannot imagine doing that much detail in just 3 hours.

    1. I am Joan. The classes are great fun as is the camaraderie with the other students. I'm so glad I signed up for a second semester. And look forward to a third. I did enjoy taking time with details on all these wonderful buildings.
