The Old Family Home (sketch)17 February 2017
As I mentioned three weeks ago, my parents recently moved from the house they’d lived in for forty years, where my brother and I grew up, and where two of my grandparents lived in the later years too. For a little while there were four generations living here. It’s a home that saw lots of happiness, some occasional sadness, and quite a lot of good eating and drinking.
This is a little painting I did for my parents.
Very nice, Ian. Clearly you used a Visconti to draw it but what did you use for the colours?
I used my beloved Platinum Sai with a fine nib and a Franklin-Christoph M03 with a needlepoint nib for the ink work, using Platinum Carbon Black ink, and Winsor Newton watercolours for the colour.
Could have sworn it was a Visconti! Anyway, nice picture.
What a wonderful tribute to your family home!
