These are a few of my early pen and colored pencil sketches of Asheville. This is what Asheville looked like when I moved here in 2000, and what my drawings looked like! I lived right downtown on Biltmore Ave, before the South Slope was cool. These sketches were completed in 2001 and 2004. I’m still within walking distance of downtown, and I’m crazy about our little town in the Blue Ridge! Love, love, love our historic buildings!!
And yes, I did sketch the Biltmore Estate on several occasions after I first moved here. A big undertaking, and since I was always on site, I was not able to finish in one sitting. Here is one of those sketches.
