Wooden shed

Everywhere in Switzerland you see these wooden sheds. They are old and skew, which is so different to everything else that are neat and clean. I could see how they could be the subject for pencil sketches. With lots of detail. As we drove around I took photographs from the car and came back with a lot of blurred photographs… but a few came out ok.

I’m still trying out pastels. I just keep on drawing really small pictures that does not work with pastel sticks at all. I’ve bought a few more pastel crayons, but my colour range is still limited. … definitely need to buy large pastel paper. : )
