no.6 (Brackenwood Drive)
the brackenwoods is an estate near where we live. i've walked through it hundreds of times, but in making the drawing for this print i noticed for the first time that the majority of houses there are built to this same design. i like the way that the householders have individualised their homes with porches and gates and gardening flourishes, and that's maybe something that i'll think about later on in the project, once i've explored a few more backroads round here.
i like the fence horizontal lines of the fence panels in this one. pattern is something that i maybe need to think more about as i draw and cut these images...
