Pen & Ink house portrait, with detail

Here is another house portrait done with black walnut ink.  Unfortunately, I didn't have a chance to scan the drawing, and instead used my sub-par little camera. The detail shot turned out better because you can make out the texture of the line work.

This drawing is 11 x 15 inches on Bristol paper.


  1. Hi Mark, I found your blog while searching for a recipe for Walnut ink. Can't wait to try it. I am however going to try it with hickory nuts as here in Connecticut we have a great many of them and few walnuts. I will let you know my results. Thanks for the info and your art is inspiring.

  2. Hi Dawn, thanks for the comment. I have no idea how hickory nuts work for ink; please let me know how it looks!
