As of 20th April 2010, this has had 3 Features, 21 Favouritings and 1528 Viewings. Thanks everyone for liking it.

Catherine Walker of Redbubble was joking about how she’d love to buy a castle to live in and that reminded me of this drawing I did 18 years ago of a stately home three miles from where I live, so I finally uploaded it onto Redbubble.

As the owners are finding it expensive to run it is now up for sale. Don’t all rush at once, but if you’d like a nice home with a history and (reputedly) the ghost of a lady dressd in white then here is the bargain of a lifetime … a mere snip at only £13.2 million ($26 million approx.).

I am a retired man who enjoys expressing himself in pencils and paints. I have had two solo exhibitions in my home town and I love Redbubble. I get as much pleasure from viewing the works of other artists as from creating my own.

    Wow, excellent detail Dave, wonderful work …

  • I think it was drawing detailed pictures like this, Tom, that knacked my eyesight .. either that or buying a computer :) Seriously … when i drew this I had perfect eyesight. Now I need glasses or everything is just a blur on the page/screen.

    I am amazed!!!
    .. all the the work in this _ it must have taken so long to do.

    wonderful !!

  • … approx. twelve hours … but not all at once … maybe periods of two hours at a time. Now … are you going to buy the building before it goes up to 27 million?

    Dave this is really impressive, great drawing but I will decline the offer of buying the mansion, can you imagine the cost of heating?? then one would have to have servants to clean it when age is creeping on.

  • Oh go on Gloria .. you know you are just making feeble excuses … buy it and rent it out to tourists :) I think you are keeping a tight hold of your money until Buckingham Palace goes up for sale :)

    You’ve certainly branched out into a variety of other forms of art from when you did so many of these drawings Dave, the main differences being colour and your own ‘whimsey’ buildings. I would guess that is part in due to you mastering your formal drawing to perfection and then you needed to move on to other challenges. I think this is one of your best pen and ink works.

  • Thank you Brian … I owe my poor eyesight to drawings such as this.

  • Who knows what the future holds. I haven’t given up on pen and ink drawing as you know, but Brian, I have so much to learn and instead of doing what I could have done and just concentrated on pen and ink I am trying to branch out into other aspects of art as well as, but not instead of, my pen and ink. For me pen and ink is special as it was the first form of art I truly enjoyed doing.
