Cabin Drawing in Pencil

Posted by on Sep 5, 2017 in commissions, drawing, Mineral King | 4 Comments

My business and website is called Cabin Art or Cabinart. This is because when I began, I lived in a cabin and I drew cabins.

I still live in a cabin (part time) and still draw them.

Here is the latest commissioned pencil drawing of a Mineral King cabin:

After seeing the Hume Lake cabin drawing from 1995 and reworking it, you can bet your boots that I was hyper-careful while working on this drawing. The photos were mine from 2 different photography sessions, there was much conversation about what should and shouldn’t appear, I used multiple photos to be certain of what I was seeing, and I went over the entire drawing with a magnifying glass at the end. In another 22 years, I don’t expect I will be able to repair or improve this one.

    How did you get the colored flag in there?

    Great drawing, Jana. I’m sure your customer will be very happy — and I know that will make you happy, too! 🙂 Wish I had time to look more carefully at some of the wildflowers you posted in previous posts and try to help you figure out what they are. Love wildflowers!

      Cheryl, thank you for checking in. . . and stay tuned for the customer’s response about the drawing. Feel free to scroll back through my wildflower posts – I obsessed on them all summer long! Fun to hear from you!
