This is a page from my small sketch book, created while I was helping a friend with her garage sale. Things were slow for a while and so I drew the scene nearby, with foxgloves and roses blooming along a worn set of steps leading up from the alley. You can see the evidence of decisions and revisions as I worked, in the faint reddish lines of my pastel pencil. Once I had what I wanted, I added the ink and then watercolor, deliberately leaving areas uncolored in order to emphasize the diagonal steps and bright blooms.
