My House!

Finally got around to doing our house! Here it is in all its splendor. What's nice is that you can make the yard look a lot nicer in these drawings. The difficult part about this drawing was that our gable ends are atypical. I call them 'splayed gables' but that's a term I made up. So I wanted to include that feature because I think it's cool but it reads funny on this drawing. Anyway the cobbler's family got their shoes if you know what I mean.

Here's the info if you want your house drawn! Thanks for looking!

Another House!

Been awhile since I posted but I've been doing a few things here and there. Here's a drawing I did of my brother's house. Like the others it's pencil on illustration board, ATC size ... 3 1/2" x 2 1/2". For the trees in the background I used a carbon pencil to make them really dark. I read that the trick is not to build up with pencil first but to put the carbon down first!! Then you can go over it with pencil if you want. It really does make a difference. Feel free to try it at home.

If you are interested in having your home immortalized in a drawing all the info you need is here!

Thanks for looking!
