Pen & Ink: Big Gramp’s House

November 11, 2015

This is my lastest pen and ink drawing.  I like working in this medium because of the details I can add.  “Big Gramp’s House” is First Love’s grandparents’ house.  It was originally built in the early 1800s as a simple log cabin.  Obviously, there have been several improvements and renovations over the almost 200 years since it first went up…most done by the original family which owned it until about 40 years ago.  The current homeowners may be surprised to know that the original logs are still within the structure.

I used Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph pen on Bristol.  This may likely be my last pen and ink drawing since my vision problems have returned…temporarily, I hope.

    It’s spectacular, and I’m so glad to see it. A beautiful home sketched from love. We have to hope it is far from the last.

    Absolutely outstanding. Do you sell your work?

      Thanks. I’ve never sold anything, but thought it would be nice to be able to say that I have.
