044 - HAWORTH PARSONAGE AS THE BRONTES KNEW IT - DAVE EDWARDS - PEN & INK - 1981 by 


FEATURED IN INSPIRED ART GROUP – 20th January 2011

I just found an old drawing of mine from 1981. Using photographs, I did this drawing of the Parsonage at Haworth, where the Brontes lived with their father. The Parsonage was extended by Patrick Bronte’s successor and the extension is now used as a musem. My drawing shows how it looked prior to the building of the extension.

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.

    I’ve always wanted to draw in such detail. I have the patience to make stained glass but I’m certain I would botch this up. Nicely done!

  • I find pen and ink drawing relaxing, but don’t do as much nowadays as my eyes aren’t as sharp as they were :)

    Hey nice one Dave! I bet that took longer than the 30 minutes to do mine! (Mind you it was very cold sat in the church graveyard today…)

  • Mine might have more fine details, but yours captures the atmosphere much better.

    Here is a great version by Martin Williamson of Redbubble:

    Its wonderful Dave- A huge fan of your buildings and the technical detail V atmosphere is just perfect. I can imagine the girls passing by behind the shadowy black windows, perhaps reciting to each other, spinning their tales.

  • Thanks Anita. I was going to visit last year again, to take photos of the interior, but I emailed and they said it wasn’t allowed.

    Thats a shame- it looks very impressive. I know some of our stately homes & museums allow you to sketch there and whilst I understand constant flashing away from tourists would not be appropriate you would think they would maybe make a little exception for an artist wanting some ref pics.

    I should say flashing of cameras by tourists as my phrasing could seem inappropriate indeed :)

  • Ha-ha …. flashing is definitely forbidden :)
