Holiday time, Ann Hyde

Sketched from a photograph taken on one of our trips away, (well, a mini holiday as it was, but I reckon this still counts for the Theme.) 

This cottage with a stream near it, made a very nice subject to draw.  Wish I had more time when we were away to have painted this scene en plein air.  For now it stays as a graphite sketch, but may well add watercolour tomorrow - if so, I'll add the updated version.


  1. So sweet. A hidden magical cottage. My imagination could go wild creating stories about this sketch. Lovely. genie

  2. I would definitely love to see the watercolor version. Beautiful sketch.
