Walnut ink house portrait,completed

I finished this house portrait a couple of days ago.  It was a challenge because of the darkness of the shadows on the dark house; building up layers of walnut ink to create large areas of deep value can be difficult because each new layer of crosshatching goes on less smoothly than the preceding layer.  Also, it was a struggle to make out the details in the source photographs.  At any rate, I am happy with the final result.

This is 11 x 15 1/2 inches on bristol paper.
