A sketch of a timber house I drew for a client in the USA. House sketches are often ordered in digital format only because the client wants to print the sketch themselves for a specific purpose, or use the sketch in digital format on a business website for example.
With a sketch drawing style the details can be drawn much looser and quicker than a full highly details pencil drawing, It all depends on the purpose of the drawing and personal preference. Sketches do not lack detail; they are simply drawn to suggest detail with enough dark line or white space to suggest what is there in reality. The balcony for example with very simple line but it is enough to show the structure.
The planting in both the image above and below need just enough detail to suggest the form, light and shadow but not too much that it distracts from the house itself.
If you would like a sketch of a house too then send me an email of give me a call to discuss your ideas. If you want the house sketch in digital format only, please let me know in advance and I'll scan the sketch at high resolution to send it to you by email.
