I drew this eighteen years ago, using Rotring pens. Morpeth is half an hour’s drive from my house.

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 really like tis one its really good
BRILLIANT BRILLIANT BRILLIANT
I am looking at the stones/this is superb and think that is what I noticed in your later work/this has been developed over time/maybe this is so/love it
woooooo so realistic, love it!
Catblack … I predict that you will create much better work than this if you keep at it …. I pride myself on spotting talent.
Good one, dave. So rich in details and textures and tones. Love the vague background that adds so much depth to this drawing. A stunning beauty!
Really beautiful work!
Well I wasn’t around when you submitted this first time. Just shows you how clueless most viewers are, if they passed over this beauty, without even bothering to comment. You know I love Thomas Hair watecolours from the 1830’s. This has the same flavour for me. You could add gentle watercolour washes (to a print of this, using canvas print paper) to try a fresh style to it.
Firstly Colin … where would I find pictures by Thomas Hair?Secondly … I have a few prints of this (I used to sell them) and I might try what you suggest. I fancy trying line and wash and even bought an instruction book. I also fancy trying A3 size, as I always use A4. Thanks for your encouragement and advice … it is appreciated.
Not interested? They must have been blind, or stupid, or both. This is totally wonderful, your detail is amazing, the B&W glorious. i love this!!!!!!
I had to have plenty detail in as it is a historic record, so I did lots of measuring and it took almost twelve hours altogether.
So detailed and accurate! Great composition and contrast!
