Duke Chapel by jbowersstudio Duke Chapel by jbowersstudio
Pen & Ink Illustration of Duke Chapel. Duke University, Durham NC.

This is my favorite Pen & Ink drawing I've made. However, only people from Duke University seem to recognize it.

This really has a feel of greatness (exoecially since we are oh-so-obviously- looking up at it. I like how you had the stains (?) ont he front wall because it really gives it a nice touch. Question: Did you draw it in pencil first or with pen straightaway?

Great questions...

About the 'Stains': There are only a few large scale Gothic-Revival structures in the US that use polished marble. So what appears to be stains is actually various colors of local stone used in the construction.

Pencil or Pen- I'll share my process if it will help you out. Just send me a message. Overall, I use a Pen and Ruler. Most of my work is a little looser than this one, but I really got sucked into this one and wanted to show every detail.

Thanks for asking.

Oh I apologise ! I didn't mean to say stains in a negative way but I didn't know how else to describe the 'various colours of local stone' (lol) Said features are very effective.
