Custom "Farm Art" Produced By Artist Who Loves Agriculture
Robert Doornbos, Hudsonville, Michigan, is a professional illustrator and graphic designer who loves to draw or paint old tractors and agricultural scenes. His top seller is a detailed series of Allis Chalmers tractors ù a WD 45, an A, a B and an unstyled WC.
He sells prints and notecards featuring the tractors through ads in collectors' magazines, and is currently working on pencil drawings of an unstyled John Deere A and a Ford 8N.
Doornbos also does custom drawings of paintings, working from photographs sent to him by customers. He asks that you send him several photos of the object or scene to be illustrated, with at least one picture shot from the angle you'd like to have depicted.
Prices for custom work start at $150 (for a drawing similar to his WD 45) and go up from there, depending on the amount of detail in the work, the background, etc. Watercolor work is more costly than pencil drawings.
