I drew this street scene as a birthday present. The person who lives in the house had said something months ago about wanting something a bit like this.
I have been there several times, but for this picture I used Google Street View for reference.
Then I started drawing the picture you see above. I liked it, got it printed onto archival paper, and was very happy with it.
But something about the scene kept calling at me, and I decided to tackle it again. I would start on paper.
The first, as you see below, was a bit of a mess. Click on the top-right of the pictures to see the caption:
