OK. I posted my two hour attempt under the Topic heading and truthfully I had already decided it was garbage and headed straight for file 13. After posting it though I kept playing with it and actually managed to get a decent pen and ink piece.

I had problems with my initial shadowing for the overhang on the right(as you look at the picture). After playing around I managed to turn the bad shadow into a believable Awning over the window. I have posted both images(Before and After) so you can compare them. Any comments would be appreciated.

And here is the final outcome

all i see is more detail... i think you are way too hard on yourself... the original was very good as well

I agree, they're both good
I think they're charming, and I like that green too
good work :)

Both drawings are great-the second one is just more developed-I love pen and ink drawings and these are good ones...

excellent! Your subtle differences in hatching has brought out the soft light quality. A delicate drawing that looks superb!

Thanks for the comments guys. I don'tdo architecture normally because of a perspective prooblem but I am really quite pleased with the way this turned out. The encouragement helps too.

They both look good to me -- you just took the second one a bit further!

Your original line drawing is very good. The "finished" drawing is excellent.

nice work! :clap:

The shadows on this one where a challenge if you looked at it long enough, I had an entirely different idea of what the front of the building looked like (more angles) untill I started drawing it and realized it was flat! You did a nice job with it though, I like your windows much better than mine :rolleyes:

Thanks Wingnut. I too thought it was built differently until I converted the reference image to greyscale and all of a sudden the building was flat fronted. PLease note I removed the waterspout because it was driving me crazy.

Thanks for all the warm comments from everyone. I think this is what I like most about Wet Canvas, everyone is so supportive.
