These are a few I did some time ago, two are graphite and one is pen and ink, the pen and ink one I did from a fantastic book I had on art.


  1. I like all of these. I enlarged the top one and was able to see the little people in the doorways which give a neat touch to the whole piece. Nice drawings paintedbrush. By now, from what you’ve said, it is verty hot there. Hope your air conditioner is serving you well. I shoveled snow this AM. Happy New Year!

  2. I thought the snow would have heaps of extra work in it, as you have to shovel your cars out also and your driveways. Its such a beautiful sight, the snow I mean. Oh the aircon was a HUGE help, the temp has dropped down today.
    How long does it take to shovel the snow away, must be quite a weight.
    Thank you for looking at my drawings.

    • Today it wasn’t deep, just heavy and slushy. Took only about 45 minutes. Glad it’s not too hot for you!

    • Hi Melody thank you for your compliment, I wish I still had the art book I did it from, It was mainly on the U.K. but it could have been from France that drawing. Not sure.

  5. I love your cityscapes! What a great detailed work! I especially like the second one, the water meeting the city makes my heart melt.

    May I point out something for you? The perspective on the first drawing may need a little tweaking. The building on our right sight is leaning slightly back and to the left. It usually happens when a tall building was photographed from the ground level, the camera cannot resolve the perspective and makes this distortion. If this drawing is in graphite, it is easy to correct, if not – something to remember for the future. I hope you don’t mind too terribly that I mentioned this.

    I am looking forward for more cityscapes in graphite from you.
