sketching fredericksburg

I'm trying to get out for a little sketching every day that I go into the studio in downtown Fredericksburg.  I have a folding chair in my trunk, I grab it and my sketching kit and go walking, looking for a shady spot with a good view.  There are so many great houses here, it is fun to sit and study them.  Many of them like this one just above have metal roofs with ridges and little gadgets to keep the snow from sliding off in big sheets.  I am still experimenting with my tools.  This one was done with a micron pen, a brush pen with water soluble ink and a water brush pen to create the shading.
