Quick sketch in coloured pencil in moleskine
Sketch of the farmhouse kitchen window - the walls are about 30 inches deep - coloured pencil, mainly polychromos and Lyra, in moleskine sketchbook - 'large' size.
I did this sketch of the window in the kitchen at the farmhouse early one morning. The stone walls are very very thick so the windowsill is about 30 inches deep. The warm light, shown by the yellow, is a little more subtle in the original - the scanner exagarates it.
I love these old stone buildings and the way they nestle into the landscape - but realise that for living in, I actually want large windows and light flooding in. And stone walls make for a very cool house! temperature that is .... not fashion. :>)
Much as I loved the farm, I realised how much I missed waking up to the sea view of other properties we've stayed in - links below.
views from window of the house we rented a previous yearNext visit I'll perhaps move back to this view - it's fantastic to open the curtains in the morning, whatever the weather :>) though the views across the farmland/edge of the moor, towards the sea was lovely this time.
