This piece was a custom order for a backyard in Chilmark, MA overlooking the water alongside their sheep. The client gave super clear photos for me to go off of on this one, so most of the creativity came to adding in the extra details and pulling it all together.
The paper illustration is sized at 12×9″ and framed in a deep black shadowbox frame made locally on Martha’s Vineyard. The frame also includes my usual Museum Glass to fully protect the image while keeping it protected from glare, dust, and sunlight.
My favorite part of this piece? I really enjoyed making the little trash box left to the building, and the fencing was a super big challenge as well that I’m really happy with in the end.
The last image on this page shows the progression of this piece from photo reference, to finalized sketch, to cut paper illustration.
