I have recently completed two commissioned drawings for quite different houses. One, a suburban Victorian villa in Portobello, Edinburgh; the other a long and low historic Cumbrian farmhouse..
I chose slightly elevated viewpoints for these to maximise the spaces that surround them and to make the most of their quite different contexts. Both are 50th Birthday presents; one yet to be unveiled, the other received with enthusiasm and thanks.
Both drawn with a combination of fine line pen thicknesses, varying degrees of pencil construction and in some parts many revisions to get the true character of these lovely houses translated onto the paper. Size: A2 (60cm wide by 40cm high) heavy cartridge, mounted into simple timber frames.
