IF Shades - black and white illustration

This is as close as I could get to this weeks topic 'shades'. This is more shading than shades. A pencil illustration I did for a cookbook called 'Canadian Recipes of the Great White North' by Chef Bari Demers. I did this many years ago but I still like it because I made this cabin up, and it's my dream cabin; where it's always warm and there are no mosquitoes or blackflies. Done in pencil.


  1. This is beautiful. When I think of the tranquil cabin in the woods, it is this. The shading was done wonderfully too!

  2. Psh, that would be nice, wouldn’t it? -- warm weather without the mosquitoes. :-P This is beautifully rendered. The lighting especially makes the atmosphere very believable.

  3. Beautifully rendered! Love how you handled the light.
