Also posted in P&I. Photographed in Germany. I just loved all the attributes and leanings of this house so could'nt resist the pic. This drawing is a precurser of a scatchboard probably about 11'x14'. The original slide was in poor condition as it was taken about circa 1954. So I had to "improvise " as to a lot of the detail.

PS....It realy did lean like that !!!

Another great one from you Victor. I can't get over how good you are with perspective and those stones in the street look so realistic.

Hi again Folks....This is a revamp of the previous drawing. There were technical errors that I dared not put on the finished scratchboard. Paper is cheaped than Clayboard ! Victor :wave:

Hi. I'm new here and really enjoying looking around. As far as this picture goes, the building actually leans in the other direction. The lower doors lead to the wine celler, which is still in business (after 200 years, or something like that). If you want to send me your e-mail, I'll shoot you a picture of this building.

Here is WIP #2 done on a 11"x14" Clayboard. The sky will be done last so it will be clean just before spraying. From here on I'll play it by ear so I can adjust or change anything that does'nt meet with my approval. Victor :wave:

Chris....I'm not sure if I under stand (minimulist) but thanks anyway!!..Victor Lol Victor..... I just looked up the word Minimalist in the dictionary and this is what it said.... Person ready to accept a minimum provisionally. Lol ... that isn't really what I meant but the word just came to mind at the time:D
I love the drawing and I love more the scratch so far. Can't wait to see how this turns out:clap: :clap:
