A house with a view

A house with a view

Well drawn perspective of the house Mia, this has to be correct above anything else when including buildings in your drawing, like your foreground touch of the grasses and the tones used on the rest of your drawing, I might have considered rendering the trees with a bit more dark over the ones to each side of the house to highlight it more, but that is only my opinion on a very well composed pen and ink drawing.

Well done Mia, love your style.

Thank you very much for your positive comments, Graham, Kirstie and Debs, I appreciate!!!

Ah Mia, how do you do it !! This is to your usual high standard.Congrats

Fab painting --I like it very much

I love this house on the hill, another great drawing Mia.

I nearly missed this one, Mia! Another of your little snapshot gems of the countryside. I can just see this painting as an illustration in an old book - has that look about it. As always, super penwork and delicate washes.

Sorry for being so late with my thanks, but we were babysitting for a week at my youngest daughters place. I am very grateful Larry, Charles, Amanda, Carole and Thea, for your lovely comments. They give me a real boost to continue!!! :) Mia

Just beautiful, Mia! It's beautifully composed and executed, as always. Sorry for the late comment. I've been on a course and have just returned, so I am catching up slowly.

As you can read above, I myself just came home on Friday after babysitting at my youngest daughters house (4 grand-children aged between 9 and 15). Thank you very much for taking the time to post this lovely comment, I always appreciate your feedback! :)

A pen and wash using an Artline marker 0,4 and 0,1, Van Dycke brown for the wash. Thank you very much for having a look and maybe posting a comment!
