I am ignorant.. in all art branches but I like the way how you draw using the short lines . It gives me an impression of an old woden houses. I like the birds over the roof... Your picture is easy on the eye.

trikermike on February 20, 2009

Janina, Firstly I do not think you are ignorant secondly, Thankyou so much for the praise of my drawing

third, the method of short strokes of pen shows an insecure belief in myself....

fourthly, that must be so, as these are not wooden buildngs, but red brick and slate roofed miners houses from the late 1800's, but the pigeons are not!

Another gem! I prefer colour, but I can certainly appreciate this as well, dear Mike - something I cannot create myself. Thanks, with hugs (O:
