September Challenge Day 26

This piece was a bit more complicated than most of the cards I have done this month. The small size made it even more difficult but I think it turned out okay.
A Working Wharf
The distant trees and bushes are all done with parallel lines which I think helps to give depth to the picture. My hand got pretty tired doing all those small lines so I ended up jumping around instead of just working from top to bottom.

Sometimes I work free hand but this card was drawn in pencil first. It is very hard to correct a mistake in pen & ink so one needs to plan ahead.

Four more day to go!


  1. Really amazing, how much detail you have here Val. Beautiful little scene :)

    1. Thanks Sheila. I made a few changes to the card after I posted this to make the distant water more obvious. sometimes you need a bit of time to look again too see problems and the challenge really doesn't give you time - lol

  2. This may be my favorite so far. I love all the detail and especially under that wharf..
