Shire House, South Farthing

Shire House, South Farthing, ate up a great deal of my drawing time, many hours, in fact, to put in the extreme subtleties of the ground, roof and lumpy hillocks and rocks. It takes time to burnish in the tones, much as it might seem simple and easy. Simple it is, easy it is not, and time-consuming beyond your wildest expectations. If you think net browsing is slow, take a whack at drawing this complex and challenging piece of graphic art. Note the weeds sprouting upward, rolling dented and handcrafted quality of the curved thatch roof, the inset of local stones in the masonry siding of the house, the mass of the big unmoveable stone boulder that defines the curve of the path.

GRAPHITE LITHOGRAPHIC STYLE MINIATURE LANDSCAPES ó $25 each. Yes, that is the wholesale price, no discount for quantity, because thereís a lot of cost behind each print, and we donít control the printing costs, the printers do. The originals were created in graphite on Heavyweight 300 gram Arches Rives BFK etching paper, and were massaged into prints by Marvette, who matched the prints with the originals. In a frame, you canít tell the difference between the print and the original. My original graphite works are no longer for sale, prints only.
