McIntosh County Courthouse – 8″ x 10″ Prismacolor Pen on 140 lb Cold Press

Don’t you just love small towns?  The buildings have so much charm and they are rich in character.  Of course, they are also old… as in I did not draw in the window air conditioners that are poking out of all the windows.  🙂

I’ll post again after it’s painted.  Check this out… Public Esquire Empire posted my drawing on their site.

Here’s a link to the finished painting.

    Looks great! I suspect a sock monkey may be hiding in one or more of those bushes! It’s going to look great in color. Purple, right? ;P
