I like our former neighbors, Judy and Louis H., and thinking about them, their 109-year-old Queen Anne style house in Southeast Portland, originally built by Oregon painter Eliza Barchus comes to mind.
These drawing are closer to sketches because I wanted to be as
accurate as possible. While we were chatting one day, I took a few
photographs of Judy on the front porch and of Louis standing inside the
ornate front door. I then made light landmark points on the paper with a
pencil, and carefully worked with my pen inlude lines where I wanted
them. When the drawing was finished, I erased all the pencil marks.
