This is another drawing I finished the night before last (full image and a detail). About half way through I started feeling like I was on slightly shaky ground, but it all came together and now I am very happy with it.

I spent quite a bit of time on the preparatory work on this because I made a significant change to the viewing angle. The reference photos were from a lower vantage point. Fortunately, the task was made easier by the fact that the house's proportions are somewhat uniform. I am pleased with how it's coming along, and I'm very glad to get past the pencil stage on this house and two others I'm working on right now. I can start inking!

Pen and Ink House Portrait, 7 x 9 inches
I completed this one late last night. It’s smaller than the last one: 7 x 9 inches. It was done with a combination of black Pigma Micron pens and sumi ink.
The commission calls for two originals of the same house, so I am starting a duplicate drawing today.

Black Walnut Ink House Portrait, 11 x 15 inches
This is on Bristol paper. I chose not to use any washes on this one; it's all cross-hatching. I couldn't get the scan to go dark enough to pick up the shading on the sidewalk and pavement--you can barely see it, but it's a little darker on the actual drawing.
A couple of detail shots:
