Tenby in ink

The view from Castle Hill, and Tim’s corner barber-shop (“Quality haircuts at fair prices”). I used the acetate grid to mark some key lines in pencil, and then started in the middle with the ink-brush and worked my way out. They’re both A4 which gave me a bit more room for detail. I’m strongly tempted to add a light colour wash, particularly in the second one, but have resisted so far… Maybe some red for the barber-shop sign and green for the distant hills at the end of the street?

    Great drawings, Ed. Specially like the perspective in second one – and the way you have used the shadows to give depth. Nice one!

    I really enjoy your drawings, and these two are esp. great. I really like them without color, but I can see how it would be tempting to see the second one with hints of color.

    Wonderful drawings, the second one is my favourite. If you decide to put some colour in, it would be fun to see how it turns out. Perhaps you could copy it and do several versions for us to compare? That would be an interesting exercise.
