Gingerbread House, Queen's Park Savannah

This piece of Art work was done in pencil. I wanted to do a historic house. I am very fascinated with old long time houses and their design. The Gingerbread House around the Queen's Park Savannah in Port-of-Spain is my favourite one.To draw this house, I went to the Savannah and sat on a bench directly opposite the house. I was working on perspective. A number of passersby stopped and enquired about my drawing, it was very relaxing to sit outdoors and draw. I finished the fine details at home and this was the result. I know the perspective is not quite right in some aspects of the drawing but I like how it come out as a whole.


  1. I love this version of the gingerbread House around the Queen's Park Savannah. It looks like something from a fairytale. The drawing is simply brillant!

  2. You captured the intricacy of the wood and metal work on this house really well. The black and white sketch also gives a feeling for the age of it. Brings back that strong nostalgia for the days of walking around the savannah with cool breezes and pleasant company.
