WDE Jan.05 Tumbledown Castle

How I love drawing buildings that are tumbling or in disrepair! I used a dip pen and sepia WN ink on Daler Rowney “aquafine” paper finished with a light watercolor wash. This paper will buckle with more than a lightish wash.
8.3X11.7”
This was about the 1-3/4 hour mark. I may piddle a little more.

The brown blob floating in the sky is where my hand inadvertently picked up ink and moved it! Argh! I was nearly done, too.

Well done. Love the irregular rocks and the jagged edges at the top.

Very nice. I think you should make the blob a bird.

Re: Tumbledown Castle

This is great! I love the detail you have put into the stonework. I like the way you have drawn the foreground too. I agree with the suggestion of turning the ink blob into a bird, there were a lot of crows around and inside the castle when I went there so it would fit right in!

Re: Tumbledown Castle

Haha. OK we will save the painting — a bird it is! I do like to always have a bird in my paintings, after all.

Re: Tumbledown Castle

This is awesome! Love the fire and the crumbling castle. you could always continue the brown blur with some brown wash applied with a sponge to do some clouds or smoke coming out of the castle... or birds, it'd work as a basis for a bird. But it wasn't distracting. I didn't notice till I read the mention and looked back to find it.

I do that too sometimes, it gets frustrating.

Re: Tumbledown Castle

Nice sketch. Good stone Twitter in the castle. The blob gives it authenticity. I have done a lot pf blob and smear drawings in ink!
