This is one of my favourite house paintings so far!

This is the main image I worked from, with some detail photos and some guessing about summer foliage and the addition of the bicycles!

I made a rough outline sketch on the computer before doing the final sketch on watercolour paper. You can see that the bikes and some plants are missing.

Hello, adorable and sunshiny house! I was excited to paint this one, because it's actually three houses all connected. It looks like brownstones in New York or something, but it's all in Hamilton! (Hamilton seriously has some awesome architecture). If you are interested in having a house portrait done, you can check out my pricing guidelines or my Etsy listing.

We slept in this morning... something that almost NEVER happens given the number of animals in our house who like waking us up at dawn. I tried to make Jay breakfast, but the gluten free pancake portion went straight into the green bin (they kind of looked like shriveled rock cakes?) If anyone has an awesome gluten free pancake recipe, please send it my way! 

I hope you all have a great weekend!
