Christ Church Parish Graveyard
In the sketchbook
After I sketched my garden shed, I took a drive over to my church to see what I might sketch in the graveyard. The graves are very old, from the Revolutionary War, and many are broken or you can no longer read the engravings. It's a very interesting place. I chose the stone above because I could still read the words and....it had an American flag on it to indicate that a veteran was buried there. I took photos while I was there as there is potential for more sketches but I might just pay another visit. There's nothing like natural light. The two locations I chose to sketch yesterday...my driveway and the graveyard...there were no people around. I'm trying to gain confidence so that I can sketch in a public place where there are people around and not feel self-conscious. Haven't tried that yet....I'm a work in progress!
