Pencil sketch; 5 × 8 ¼″ Moleskine sketch album (120 gsm paper).
This pencil sketch is of an abandoned house next to the Village Office in Port Elgin, New Brunswick. There are so many beautiful houses like this around, but they won’t be for long.
This March, 1990, sketch was done on location with a blue, felt-tip pen of some sort, on paper that’s clearly full of acid given how much it’s yellowed (probably generic typing or note paper). Probably a Pilot Fineliner. Measures about 6 ½ × 2 ½″.
Professor Nichols was very pleasant, but I’d clearly heard enough about Sigmund Freud that morning.
