This is a Cape Dutch House I sketched.
This is the type of houses we have in the Cape Province of South Africa.

Note from Kerry:
Hi Ricky
Your drawings are so meticulous, I am very taken by your wonderful artwork and I could view it forever. These are simply lovely!
Ricky, do you draw from photos or do you draw on location?
Wow, you are good!

Added comments:

Kerry, thank you once again for looking at my work. I really do appreciate it as I know you are strapped for time.
Regarding where I do my work? I take out books at the library, go through them and if there is any I like, I sketch them. Sometimes they are small and I have to draw them to scale on my sketch pad.
My biggest problem is that I find it very difficult to draw a vertical line because of my one eye. Close one eye and try to make a vertical line! You will see just how difficult it is. They always seem to lean over, so to do two next to each other is when you see just how difficult it really is. Thank you once again.

I love your style Ricky. They are so good! Your handicap sure doesn't seem to be holding you back any, and that is admirable in are doing a fantastic job regardless of that. You should show your work....I think more people would like them than you might think. Plus, knowing your handicap, they may even sell better. We have a few houses like that here in Las Vegas, but you better be prepared to pay well over $2 Mill....for one......
