Abandoned House I

Today we had mixed precipitation coming down with the temperature at 41F (5C) and the wind chill making it feel like 30F (-1C) so I decided to stay home and finish this drawing that I have been working on for a very long time (see posts on 18 Jun 2013, 20 March and 29 July 2016, 14 January and 15 May 2017).

I started by putting in the tar paper on the roof of the building that was held in place with wood strapping.

From there I worked on putting the shadows on the stones that made up the front of the building.

Lastly, I put in the stones on the shadowed side of the building to complete my drawing.

This original 6" x 9” pen and ink drawing, when matted and shrink wrapped will be available for $50.00.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my artwork and I hope you will return often.
