Fairytale house


Pen and ink on paper. After two years of almost exclusively digital painting, i'm glad to have picked up my pen again. It's very therapeutic, drawing all those little lines.

Absolutely lovely!! It looks like a very warm and cozy little nook that's tucked away in some overlooked corner of the world. At night, I could just imagine the soft glow oozing from the outside lamp while moths dance tirelessly around it until morning. And I can see the soothing candlelight in the top window, with the silhouette of an artist fluttering away in the flickering light, hard at work on their next masterpiece. I hope you don't mind but I imagined walking inside. I committed burglary, but only in my mind. Besides, I didn't imagine stealing or breaking anything. I'm just too curious and I had to see what was inside. It's a lovely home. Though, I did imagine sipping on wine and eating some bread and cheese while sitting by the fireplace. I also used the bathroom and I used someone's toothbrush. I left a note on the door that said thank you.

This really is a wonderful drawing. When I was a kid I loved drawing houses with impossible architecture. And I totally agree about the pen and paper. Digital art offers many advantages, and I love trying all mediums of art, but if I had to pick just one medium then it would simply be pen and paper.

Wow! That's got to be the most fantastic review I ever got :-) I think every artist hopes to invoke certain feelings with~in the viewer, but you just perfectly described the mood I was hoping to convey.
Wine, bread and cheese, absolutely!
You just made my day with this comment. Thank you so much!

Very nice! I particularly like details in the lantern and sign. Nice texture on the wood and stone. Sweet touch with the hearts on the shutters as well. It reminds me a bit of The Burrow (from Harry Potter, Weasley's House). :)

Bojeva responds:

Thank you very much. I love the mood of the Harry Potter books. They certainly inspired me.
