Dramatic Misty Mountain scene from imagination this morning. Influenced by some of Dore’s illustrations! Black, white, cyan and a little bit of orange. Reminds me a bit of Chimney Top mountain near Gatlinburg TN as I scanned it. It caught fire a few years back. (gouache 9×11) Spray mister came in handy on this one.

Morton-Brittain Historic Home in Nolensville Tennessee


Pen and Ink drawing of the Morton-Brittain Historic Home in Nolensville Tennessee.
Quote from Channel 4 News in Nashville…  “The Morton-Brittain House has been at its spot in Nolensville since a time it was surrounded only by farmland. Stagecoaches carried people by. It’s a survivor from a very different time. “It was built in 1870,” said Carroll Moore, president of the Nolensville Historical Society. “This house represents the former Nolensville.”

Royal Theatre and Dr. Charles Pat Marsh's Office

Drawings in progress. I like to envision buildings that interest me as they might have looked way back. This is my "Restoration" of the Royal Theatre and Dr. Charles Pat Marsh's office in Petersburg TN as envisioned back in the day. I had to guess at what the entrance looked like as it's gone. I looked at some old pics of other theatre entrances as a reference point. Elevation drawing and perspective. #petersburgtn Maybe an old photo will appear someday. I can always redraw it!
