Peconic Herb Garden

I revisited the Peconic Herb Farm today and did two paintings. This is a small one for my "Sketchbook" project. I've painted this shed from the other side previously.

Next I sketched the view through the doors of one of the open greenhouses. I like the way the double page spread worked for this. The paper I used was pretoned with watercolor paints. Originally I was just going to sketch in ink over the color, but this took on a life of it's own.
