This was actually my very last sketch at Colonial Williamsburg on this trip.  It also happens to be my personal favorite.  This garden is a wonderful  and peaceful spot.  It just happened to be a beautiful morning as well which made it even more special while sitting and drawing.
Another of the Williamsburg sketches.  I actually did this sketch just prior to the one above.  The Palmer House was built in 1755 and sits just across the street from the Capitol building.

  2. I love the palette too! Especially the violet shadows, and overall use of violet to indicate darks. In fact, I like this idea so much I am going to use it in my painting - Thanks, Don!

  3. Really loving these fresh, bright colors! I'm with Alex, I have GOT to go bolder with my shadows...I start out with a violet, and then pretty soon I've grayed it down and made it more subtle--which then turns into mud! These are so inspiring...

  4. The thing that makes your favorite, my favorite too, is the picket fence on the left. The color through the slats and then the shadow on the slats.

  6. This makes me seriously think about deleting all the sketches I did in Colonial Williamsburg last April. I mean, this is superb!
