Houses, sunday sketches

houses, sketchbook project 2012
pen on paper

My second sketch for the sketchbook project 2012. We all have reasons for keeping things and my Mother has kept these 4-inch houses on the windowsill for years. I used black pen and colored pens. There are actually only 3 houses, so I used gimp to stitch my line drawing, the colored drawing and and inverted drawing altogether.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
And thank you to Sophia for her Sunday Sketches blog hop.

So sweet! You know what would be a cool print idea? Square up 9 house in rows and columns of three. Make the first house a drawing of a really, really old house, and morph each house next to it into a slightly more modern counterpart...so that when you get to the last house in the last row, it is a modern house. Cool way to analyze house architecture through the centuries!

Lovely and cheerful! I have to admit to having one of those houses in my kitchen too - a souvenir from someone's travels.

What a neat collection and a great addition to your sketchbook! I love your use of color in this piece. (I agree with Heather - it would make a great note card!)

These houses are wonderful! Something delicious, uplifting and comforting about them. Truly little treasures.

These houses are adorable, Juana. I don't know what it is about houses but I always wonder who is living in them.

By the way the ladies in your right hand column are amazing too.
