View from upstairs
Unlike urban sketching, you can work from a photo. Which is handy. This is the view from our bedroom window. I took the photo a few weeks ago - I love dramatic skies! I should really go to the West of Ireland - best sunsets in the world!
The one disadvantage of working from a photo is that you paint what you think things should look like, rather than how they are - the tree must have green leaves, the roof must be red. The reality, with the rose glow of the sky, was more pink everywhere!!
