Sketch of the Day: Gamekeeper’s Cottage, Deer Park Posted on October 7, 2014 by zeladoniac Posted in architecture, Art, Denmark, Drawing, field sketching, landscapesTagged architecture, Denmark, drawing, Jaegersborg Deer Park, life drawing, Thatched roofs, watercolor There’s a fancy little palace in the heart of the Jaegersborg Deer Park called The Hermitage which was the King’s hunting lodge once upon a time when they had hunts here. This ain’t it. I think this might have been a caretaker’s or gamekeeper’s residence. Either way, nothing says “cute” like a thatched roof cottage. Watercolor over pencil, Stillman & Birn Alpha Series Sketchbook. The view around the back at the Hermitage, which I think is the more interesting side. Rococo, even.

Beautifully rendered cottage!
This is a great place to spend a couple of hours. The deer herd is really impressive. The size of the antlers they have is not what we are used to seeing in the U.S. They could only be compared to a bull elk. I’m glad you took the time to draw the deer and to draw/paint the thatched roof gamekeeper’s residence. We found that our Danish relatives think nothing of these thatched roof buildings which dot the whole country. I took pictures of many of them, but never took the time to sit and draw one. Your drawing looks great and captures the quaint feel they give the observer.
