One ink down, one to go

The first inking

The first inking

The inking on the first of the two drawings is almost done.  I need to do a bit more on the upper parts of the trees, balancing out the darker areas, and draw in the window curtains, but I didn’t quite get to it today.  I’m going to let it sit and then finish the inking before I start on the next one.  The whole process will take somewhat longer than normal but it is the way I feel most comfortable working on this project.

The feel of this one is a bit different from other home portraits I’ve done.  With the focus a bit farther out, it definitely has more of a neighborhood atmosphere.  For such a simple house, this is not necessarily a bad thing.  I once did a little brick ranch house that was up on a small hill with the viewpoint from slightly below.  It enhanced the house , making it seem much grander than it really was.  The pale yellowish siding on this will make this small structure a natural focal point amid all of the green foliage.  The sidewalks will stay light too.

    I really am intrigued with the look of this one. Looks like the house is actually peeking out from under that canopy of leaves.
