How cute is this?! I like the chimneys and the amount of house she managed to pack into a square inch!
All those small stones and outlines she did so well! I have a lot of respect for her thin, light and skinny lines.
I am stuck on all the small details she put into the cottage. Those doors on the left would open up to allow a boat to launch right in to the water from the lower house.
Quoted from her explanation:
... are based on the family houses of the fishermen in Kirkwall, Orkney. The lower half of the house they would store the boats & nets etc and live in the upper floor. hence the stairs up to the 1st floor. What i couldnt show is that they were built very close together with the narrow side facing the harbour. Each house has it's own slip from where the could land and launch their boats. Do an image search on google for Kirkwall Orkney and you will see what I mean.
Another excellent detail; the cat in the window! So very cute. The shading on the boat is great, too.
She also included a detailed stone base for the cottage to rest on, but I completely failed to photograph it.
Thank you BushBaby!
