This month I was finally able to get a drawing done in time for the Virtual Paintout hosted by Bill Guffey. Each month he picks a different location to travel to using Google Streetmaps. Latvia is the location for June. Most times I travel all over trying to decide what to draw and run out of month to get my drawing done. Here is one of my choices. This is one of the outbuildings for the Durbes Manor House on the outskirts of Tukum, Latvia. Here is the Link for the google map. Latvia has alot of interesting architecture. There are loads of castles, abandoned buildings, modern homes, etc. If you want to find out more about the Durbes Castle, here is a website. One of the outbuildings intrigued me more than the manor house itself. This building sits at the entrance to the complex.
This drawing is done in colored pencil on brown paper bag type paper. It's a sketchbook I have reserved for only google streetmap drawings. Enjoy!
