'Chipping Campden, Cotswolds'

‘Chipping Campden, Cotswolds’

This little village street scene of Chipping Campden in the Cotswolds can also be seen in my Pen and Ink section. It was done from a photograph taken whilst on a family holiday.  I do like to recreate some of my artwork in different mediums. Whilst, I think, the pencil drawing gives a softer, more romanticised feel to the scene, the pen and ink illustration gives a very crisp no fuss kind of picture. It amazes me how two scenes exactly the same appear so different even when drawn by the same person. It is almost as if the ink illustration conveys matter of factly “I am, what I am” whereas the pencil drawing has more character and depth somehow, even though they are similarly shaded.

(I have included the Pen and Ink drawing below so a comparison of style can be seen together)
