Mansion studies

I did this quick oil study of a local mansion today.

Here's an ink study I did of it beforehand. I think I prefer this to the painting!

Behind me was the church I painted last week, so I did a quick ink sketch of it for fun too.  It might have made for a better subject than the mansion, but I wanted to try something different. I may return to the church later, as I do like it a lot.
