"A Sketch in Llanfechain"

I fell in love with Welsh countryside years ago. Perhaps it was because of its green hills and beautiful pastures, or its lovely architecture. It's good to have a place which inspires you and gives you a different perspective. Fascination always powers your life towards improvement.

This is a sketch I made in Llanfechain, a small village in the heart of Wales (you might remember my other sketch from this place, posted in May here).
I used a black marker, which, luckily, was a bit dry and used up. This allowed me to make many kinds of strokes, which gave a more real feel to the architecture.

  3. Wonderful drawing of, to me, a tough subject! The dry-ish marker was just right.

    1. Thank you, Sherry! I so enjoyed drawing it, that it didn't really matter if it was tough or not :)
