Re: East Channel Lighthouse in Upper Michigan

Bill, do you have any idea how marvelous your pen and ink works are? I look forward to each new one as it is posted, and would be thrilled to be able to buy one. (I could never afford a price worthy of your original pieces, but as a set of note cards -- that I would jealously guard and never actually use, perhaps?)

You really must look into producing a series of "local" works -- perhaps centered in and around a nearby vacation or tourist area? They would sell like hotcakes!

Really nice, Bill. Very smooth shadow transitions, great foliage and excellent perspective. I like how the light catches the windows and framing.

Lynn's right. That would make a great note card.

Re: East Channel Lighthouse in Upper Michigan

OH MY GOSH.
I am so touched that you chose one of my photos as reference for your brilliant pen work.
The drawing shows that there is as much love and patience incorporated in this creation as there is skill and talent.

I do think that note cards with scenes of this nature would sell nicely in gift shops. You should seriously consider it. If you ever see another photo of mine that you would like to use, please let me know so that I can send you the original LARGE file.

I am blown away and flattered at the same time.
You made my day.

LORELL

Re: East Channel Lighthouse in Upper Michigan

Thanks Doug. Your opinion means a lot to me.

Dis4u, thanks! I usually spend 8 to 10 hours per drawing, but its a labor of love.

Lynn, you are so kind. The thought of cards has occurred to me.

John, I value your insight and very kind comments.

Char, gosh!

Lorell, your photo was brilliant and begging me to draw from it. Thanks so much for your kind remarks and your wonderful photo.
Bill

WOW Bill! I'll echo what everyone said about doing a set of gift cards to sell through some shops around you - your work is absolutely amazing!

Re: East Channel Lighthouse in Upper Michigan

It's a lovely drawing bill - and I agree about making those cards!
... try scanning and printing on card, see what you think!
