Artist's Cottage by SirInkman Artist's Cottage by SirInkman
Pencil on 11x14 sketch paper

More holiday pencil work. Just an imaginary home for an artist, fanciful yet practical with a quite large courtyard.
As I most often do, I started with the door and worked out from there.
I don't usually feel that the capture method [scanner or photo] really gets the subtleties of pencil. Oh well.
Wish I had a large format scanner. Or a better lighting setup for photographing artwork.
And here's the workshop behind the cottage as suggested.

As would I. I hope to one day build a small house such as this with all the curves and character if I'm able.
It would be so nice to have such a big studio area. :)

Such a sweet dream! I hope you'll do it one day :)
I absolutelly agree! My studio is in my living room, and as my business grows, it's more and more hard to find place for everything I need *sigh*

Thanks Abdo. I do too. I think a lot of building has become too dull, too simplified because of cost savings.

right, it's all like tall shining boxes all around the city, but thanks to clever architects there's some variety from time to time
anyways, keep doing awesome stuff :)

So true. But hey, you live in a country with such great old and ancient buildings to see and visit. :)
I would love to be able to visit so many of those places only seen in photos. I will keep at Abdo. :D
