35 East 68th Street

 

   Just off Madison Avenue this richly-carved townhouse is spread over seven levels, and was built in 1901 by a successful physician and his heiress wife. The architects were one of the most renowned firms of the time, Carrere & Hastings, and other works in the city of theirs include the New York Public Library and the interior of the Metropolitan Opera House.

   Barred horizontal Limestone on the main level gives the building a rich and elegant street presence, and intricate carvings adorn the door and window openings. A gentle staircase with smoothly carved balustrade leads below to the basement level, and on the floors above the craftsmanship and detail is stunning, with incredibly rich limestone carving and iron balustrades set against a smooth ashlar wall surface.  The upper floors boast a generous roof terrace screened by a columned balustrade- perfect for looking out over the city!

Each Townhouse starts life as a scaled set of pencil guidelines which give me the basic layout, after which I start building up layers of shading with drawing pens graded from 0.05mm to 0.5mm- this builds up increasing levels of depth and richness. I then go over each drawing meticulously in pencil to bring in softer mid tones and mimic certain textures in a different way
