More Loudoun Landscapes

Yet more landscapes from what used to be beautiful rolling hills and farmland. This land is soon to be covered with McMansions and concrete. Below is a serious jackhammer. I did this in pen and ink using a Rapidograph. I then added watercolor - not my best effort - I think I should have stuck with the pen and ink.

This is a study I did in pen and ink before the sketch above.

Very nice drawings! Remind me quite a bit of Danny Gregory's detailed drawings of "all things technical" in the CL book.

Hi Zeke
thanks for commenting on my blog - I'm glad you did as I could not find your blog and now I can! Is this your original blog? Have you just changed the style? or changed address? I have put you on my blogroll so I don't lose you again.

Loving your brilliant drawings as always. So precise and well executed. I've enjoyed looking through them all again. Great work.

Ahhh...concrete, mcmansions...this scares me. I feel as though we are being overtaken. Not a half a mile from my old house about 6 little old homes were wipped off the map for a new movie theater. Sheesh...it makes me sad.

But, moving on, I like the fact that you are able to create artwork out of this event. The machinery is very sculptural and makes a great subject. And...I like the watercolor.
