Sketch of an Old House
H South, based on a photo by polska1 @ stock.xchng
Here's a sketch of the old house using fairly casual line and shading to describe the stonework. I sketched in some rough guidelines to indicate where rows of stonework create perspective lines then drew in the stonework quite loosely. I think I've managed to skew the perspective of the stairs a bit! Where there are defined areas, such as door frames, it can look good if you also define the ajacent blocks of stone fairly clearly, allowing the amount of detail to decrease in the more open areas of wall.
