A Visit to St. Mary's College

St. Mary's Chapel, ink & watercolor
 I visited St. Mary's College to see a landscape painting and drawing show in their Museum of Art. The shows were great and afterwards I tried sketching a couple different views of their chapel.

I struggled with both sketches: I was sitting on a picnic bench that was popular with wasps and they kept landing on my bright yellow Lamy Safari fountain pen. The light changed and the shadows that attracted me initially were gone when I was ready to paint. I accidentally splattered some red in the sky... But any time spent sketching is good time, even if the results aren't the best.
