Trying to get inspired to take out my colour pencils and get drawing again, I looked back at what has inspired me in the past. This old house was a starting point...
...which led to a more detailed look at the same house.
My friend actually lived in this old home and while sitting on his lawn, waiting for the barbecue to cook our meal, I noticed the pattern of the shadows cast by the setting sun.
This was one of the first old house drawings I did; another local deserted home close to where I live.
This old place attracted me because of its setting and also because the snow was melting and made interesting patterns in the corn rows.
I did a small series of old houses drawn on taupe, recycled paper. I just loved the effect.
One of my favourites I called Ghost House. Still love it.
