Graphite Pencil Drawings of Houses

After the Christmas rush I was commissioned to draw two lovely houses. This was a first for me, I had never drawn any type of building before (or trees for that matter!) and to be honest I was a little nervous about it. One of the reasons I was nervous was because the portraits were only 5.25 inches square! I had never drawn anything so small, how would I capture all the detail???  I started with the house I was least looking forward to drawing ~ the house with the tree in front. I figured if I could get that one done, the second house would be a breeze.
I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed drawing the houses in the end, and the house I was dreading the most turned out to be my favorite out of the two. I am looking forward to drawing more houses in the near future.
