Great drawing very precise and detailed love the overall composition in the first one. Wonderful subjects. Just curious but roughly how long do these take you: drawing n' watercolor washes?
Drop me a line,

Nice job, Rob. I think that your use of pencil versus pen brings out another dimension to your compositions ... More realistic and subdued. And this is from someone who loves a fountain pen sketch!

Thanks, ZS- I miss Switzerland!!
Thanks Benjamin- drawing/watercolor is faster for me than drawing with pen. The house took about an hour.
Thanks, Michael- I think you're right. The pen more easily turns my sketches into cartoons. I should try sepia pens some time.

Thanks rob, by chance what size of paper do you use? Sorry I've been really pressing myself to come up with quick sketches and wanna see more or less how I stack up lol

I use all different sizes. This sketch is on large paper, and the sketch itself must be at least 12 in. wide..??
