Bricks, inked

Brick house, inked

I spent two days inking this large house up. It is a good thing it is a 14″x9″ portrait. There is so much going on, if it were any smaller, a lot of detail would have been lost. As it is the windows and shutters are just big enough to color with the pastels.  I enlarged the landscaping and added flowers after discussing it with the owner.  I wish there were some trees planted in the front yard, but I’ll have to make do with the row on the back property line.

The coloring has gone quickly and I still hope to have it in the mail tomorrow.  Maybe he still can get it framed up in time for Christmas.

    Yes, they should have planted a specimen tree or two about 30 years ago. 🙂 Nice work, but it must have taken you ages to do all that detail.

      Ha ha. I wish it were that easy. Maybe they like the expanse of lawn for kids to play in. Layout was the hardest thing for this one with all of the different roof lines. Inking can be fun. Color is the icing on the cake.
