Cottage in Odiham Hampshire England

Plein air sketching this morning in the delightful village of Odiham in Hampshire with some members of the Alton Art Society. We gatherered this morning at the centre of the village and after a tour of the alleys and the beautiful country lanes,we decided to start painting in front of a chosen subject. I noticed this very old cottage at the back of the church and set my folding chair to sketch it  in my open sketchbook . I was accompanied by a gentleman artist who decided to do just the drawing of this quite complex subject.

I finished the whole painting in 2 and a half hours and joined the others in the local pub for a chat before leaving. The weather was overcast and I took some artistic licence to put more light. What a great morning spent with very nice people!
