Snow on “Jimmy Perez” house in The Lodberries

John (astaman) of WetCanvas lives in Shetland just 150 yards from this scene
and has given me permission to use his photo as a reference. Thank you, John. The image is 6 1/2" x 8 1/2" on bristol with .25 and .45 Pigma pens.
I appreciate all comments.
Bill

Beautiful sketch Bill, great textures on the stonework and cobblestones.

Very nice, Bill. Great control of those pens to make the stonework so real.

It's as if I was there Bill. Seriously though it's an excellent drawing. As Doug said, the texture is masterful. If you don't mind one more thought, I think you could push the tonal contrast bit harder but it's a very fine little drawing. I'll post more pictures in Wash when I dig them out.

That's a beauty, Bill! I agree about upping the contrast a bit, if you don't mind me saying so. Anyway, very well done!

Re: Snow on “Jimmy Perez” house in The Lodberries

Yes, maybe a little more contrast in some areas but really, this is a super drawing Bill and does justice to this lovely place .... if you get the chance to see the programme where it's used, worth watching!

John - we could use some of your photos of this in the RIL if you'd like to share them!

Thank you all for your kind remarks. You are right about the contrast as seen here. The actual drawing is better.
