That is a beauty all right!!  :oops:  It just took me almost three hours just drawing it. Of course I made it difficult for myself and used the grid to make it larger. I also drew it on tinted paper..couldn't wait to try it. Hmmmm I'm hoping that wasn't a mistake.   :banghead:

When I saw the template I thought about using coloured paper. Letting the colour of the paper be the house colour, then adding a bit of pastel for the trim work and then possibly a bit more pastel to put in a sort of distant/hazy background in a vignette fashion. Simple right?  ::)    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Whew!! That was intense--I was to start dinner at 5 but I was so engrossed with this house, I passed it by 90 minutes. I loved being in my own world with this class though  :smitten: .
I couldn't resist adding a little colored pencil to it. It is on 9x12 tinted paper. I increased the size of the house and I see a couple lines are out of perspective. Hey, it's on a hill!

Lovely painting Carol;

I just watched the video and I was thinking about using a yellow tone
pastel paper to bring out the house colour but, now I am having second
thoughts.  Maybe a blue grey tone paper might work better for showing
us the sky.   NOT sure which way to go.  House or Sky colour ??????

I may go with Val's suggestion of highlighting with pastel pencils.

You have inspired me to go for the colour. It seems to take away the
darkness of the Pen and Ink.   This one should be called Mix Medium.

Very nice rendering.

Outstanding Carol  :heeha:   O0  I barely got started and had to go to the hospital again.....oh well, perhaps I'll get a chance tonight after I get back from the hospital again. Just had a minute to pop in...couldn't wait to see if anyone got through the lesson. Your colouring is wonderful, now I'm thinking more along the line of w/c washes  :idea:    :doh:  Someone take me away!!!    :2funny:
Cheers, Val

Wow Ray, your details are so precise. Are you a draftsman?  Did your drawing take long to do?  Mine took 2 hours to draw and then 3 for the p&i etc., but loved every minute. You did a fantastic job.   :urwelcome:
