EDM #128 room into room view

Last week was unusually busy and I had no time for my sketching until I got to Maine (long weekend) - Then I had three days with lots of sketching time. I have lots to post but I will start with last week's challenge, 'view from one room into another'. I choose our house in Maine, looking out the front door onto the deck and the ski slopes in the distance. I did it rather quickly as I waited for hubby to finish his packing to leave. It came together quickly and I even had time to add the color. Of course I would have done better to leave it and come back - now I see the slopes look like yellow tree trunks instead of the straw and sketchy foliage they are in summer.

This is just lovely, Sandy - in fact the yellow and green make an abstract design in the window - I never even thought of a yellow tree trunk! Your house looks beautiful.

Oh Sandy, this is so wonderfully done!! To me, having a house in Maine would be the ultimate. Can'[t wait to see the rest.
