House Sketch

This photo shows the beginning drawing/sketch of the house where I live. It is a preliminary compositional sketch prior to a painting commission. The kids playing in the yard still have to be drawn. The slide, swing set, wood fence and house are all elements the client requested to be in the painting.

Have I mentioned that I'm not great at perspective simply because I don't practice accurate perspective enough so that it comes automatically. As one can see I did not draw in the horizon line or eye level so there could be areas that need correction. The yards of the house and barn both slope down gradually.

Now I have to rush to get ready for class this morning!
