Hello, this is Phil L Nippert. I post drawings of mine here to offer (usually limited edition) digital prints of them for sale (I will not be selling the originals). Limited edition runs are set at 50 unless otherwise noted. All prints are printed at 600 dpi, made from scanned originals and have been test-printed to ensure clarity. I only use permanent, pigment-based HP inks which meet the ISO 11798 fade-resistance standard. All prints are matted and mounted (default mat choice is a two inch border in a neutral color, but I will try to meet other realistic specifications). Shipping costs not included in posted prices. To see what's here, scroll down until you see a drawing you like. Some are realistic and some are abstract, some are in black and white and some are in color. All prints are done on acid-free white cardstock with at least a half inch border, and signed and numbered by hand. To purchase something, click on the basket icon between the search boxes to the right, then click on "Return to Shop" to access a complete list of prints. Everything on here is registered with the US Copyright Office.
Liked this view of trees overlapping buildings, and made a point of returning to draw it before the leaves and flowers obscured it too much. If you’re wondering, the pine tree visible in the background had had its lower branches shorn so that all that was left was the trunk, which was hidden by some of the foreground trees. This is a drawing that made me use several versions of the same color (pink and blue). Left the grass white so that the drawing breathed better. Unusual proportion for me, as it’s nearly square.

By this time I’d already done a few freestyle contour drawings of landscapes, with the albeit heavily-abstracted scenes being done in one, page-filling piece, with contour details of various things drawn on top of the base drawing here and there. This one was an overlapping of many pieces with no base drawing at all, giving it a denser look. Wanted color harmony in there but had to be restrained so as to clarify and not clutter up the composition. This is the other side of the building I sketched sometime later for “side door” (see below). See if you can find the whales.

One of some old drawings I used to see if I could use color over a complete drawing in a presentable way. Unusual for me in that it’s not a building or tree or landscape, and not based on life or any picture. Had about seven different greens to use, and to keep the saturation high I didn’t want to blend any of them.
