House portrait - pen and ink
This is a house portrait that I completed recently. It was a birthday gift for the owner. I love doing house portraits in addition to the pet portraits and other artwork. They have to be precise in the perspective and proportion, but they don't have to be dull. For example, all of the landscaping that is around this house softened up the look of the portrait and gave it a bit of liveliness. And getting the details just right really helps the portrait come together and become a unique piece of artwork for the owner.
