Here are three little studies. For the watercolor Snowshill Manor(5 x7inches), I concentrated on adding details only in and near the COI. The two pen and wash sketches were done directly from the monitor with a Castell pen in my art journal. Stepping Into Spring is a crop of the Manor house photo. I was inspired to try this style from this week's posts by Ros and Maureen.

These are very, very pretty - the first immediately grabbed my attention - love the subtlety of colour and your idea of using 'impression only' to lead us into the painting works very well. Frame it!:)
Love those little quickies too - they have a lovely freshness and immediacy because of the pen and fluid wash - a real sense of time and place. :)

I certainly have to agree with Maureen on these Athena an do frame
the Manor gardens!

Oh, this is really really nice - love that manor. Sketches are great too. Glad I was able to inspire you - but yours is so much better than anything I could do.

These are all lovely, and the detail in and around the cottage does draw the eye, but is not obvious. Good tip.
