This local home was just begging to be painted- quick and on the spot. I used pen and ink first to sketch out the house and get the details in. Then came back in with some simple watercolor washes to give it color. I find that not all paintings have to be labored over, in fact the ones that happen with spontaneity come with a freshness that you just can’t duplicate. In fact ,in this case I made a last minute decision to change the color of the house to yellow from white, why you ask ? I just wanted to!
