A Few More Inks

Two more pen and ink drawings. The first one is from a photo I found online then edited significantly, cropped, and used as a reference. It's just houses on a hillside, but represented a significant challenge, owing to the detail, etc. The second is a local landmark, the Salisbury House. It's on the National Register of Historic Places and was constructed by a manufacturing executive about 80 years ago using pieces of manor houses from England and elsewhere. As you can see, this one involved heavy used of ink and brush as well as a dip pen. (Both of these are available. They're about 8x10 on illustration board, by the way.
