McFarland House




5.5"X4" Marker on paper


This House was the home of John McFarland and his descendants for 150 years. The original John McFarland, emigrated from Paisley, Scotland around 1782. John McFarland and his sons built the house about the year 1800 from bricks made in a kiln on the property.


These marker sketches sometimes turn out better than I expect. I have a new scanner, and although it is much better than the last one (no pink caste) colours are often a bit subdued. I usually correct to bring the copy closer to the original, but this time I didn't because the lower key is actually closer to the brick colour I was looking for than the orange highlighter gave me. I am not selling it so I don't feel too guilty.
