House Portraits

"Camborne Circle" - pencil, pen and watercolor, 8" x 10", 2010

"Belle Manor" - acrylic, 16" x 20", 2004

Though I haven't been able to find 20 minutes to sketch in the last couple days, that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about art. To incorporate more of my finished art in with the sketches I've been posting lately, here are a couple house portraits. Commissioned work like this is very enjoyable to me, and I often sketch houses and architecture for the fun and practice of it. While neither of the houses I painted above had dramatic architectural details, I aspired to make the houses as charming and welcoming as can be to please the clients and my own sense of style.

  1. I am fascinated by homes. These are wonderful drawings! They remind me of some that my sister did of our grandparents' house.
