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.
Did this one Sunday in late winter 2019 with a fountain pen. Made a minor digital correction then added watercolor to the houses in the center background only. Left it alone for about two months while I gradually used more and more color in my drawings. Returning to it in early May, I added color to the foreground lawn and most of the trees. Pretty busy look for winter, but the colors harmonize.

Saw a family standing together beside a building’s hedgerow while having tea across the street. Wanted to recreate that scene, so I came back several days later to the restaurant from which I’d seen it and sketched this view from one of the windows in pencil (the building and street corner). Walking home I drew the leaf and the flowers (basically any flower I could find in my back yard lawn in mid-April) and added these in. Added dipping pen and watercolor work to highlight.

Did this in a coffee and tea place across the street using my small sketchbook. Enlarged it a bit and added watercolor as carefully as I could so as not to distract from the building structure too much. Added two applications of medium-dark inkwash when I thought the high color saturation gave it an airless feel. Much prefer it this way.

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.
