Alsacian House

I kinda like the way a sketch looks before shading it.

Below is the same picture after the shading is applied. I used stippling again to make the gradations. I really liked how the sun was hitting this house at just the right angle showing all of the various lines cast by the roof line and shudders.

Naturally, I love these old houses. This is a house in a village in the Alsace wine region of France, not far from where we live. Beautiful part of the world. This was drawn in my moleskine plain paper book. Original size: 5x3.5 inches.
