Beaver Valley Farmhouse (Set of 4)


Beaver Valley Farmhouse (Set of 4)

Gift with Purchase: Set of 6 Greeting cards by artist Steve Rose

I was inspired to do this sketch of the farmhouse because of the way it was starting to collapse in on itself. I've been told by my brother who has property just down the road that indeed it has finally collapsed.

Notice the windows are leaning inward as well as the chimneys on the roof. I loved the texturing I did on the roof showing areas of missing shingles and showing the old roof boards exposed. Crisscross line work was used to represent short, tall grasses and  weeds etc. Also showed trees to add more interest and balance to the composition.

Note the deeper tones in the trees which adds depth and casts shadows. The sun's direction comes into play again with heavier texturing under the eaves of the peak of the roof and the down spout shown in front.

I finally completed the other elevations of the farmhouse to complete the series. As in the first sketch the same techniques for Pen & Ink were used.

I may go back to this location in Beaver Valley and do another sketch of the now collapsed farmhouse to add a fifth piece the series of sketches........
