A pencil drawing of a cobbled street scene of a house standing in the north German town of Bremen.
This is a graphite pencil drawing with the darkest lines produced with a very soft graphite 8B pencil. The cobbles are all drawn individually which is quite difficult to get the fan pattern correct.
A pen and ink sketch of an old thatched cottage in England.
I started by sketching out the main detail in ink and then used a light wash of water to 'bleed' the ink out to give the lighter grey shades. I then used a very soft graphite pencil to add the rougher texture of the grass and thatch to help give a little more depth.
