Hidden Porch

Yesterday I rode around looking for something that attracted me, but the trees have no pop of color and everything looked so barren and brown! Finally I found this spot in Bellport. The part of the house to the right had enough trees and foliage hiding it  that I could sort of ignore the perspective nightmare it would be to actually draw it. lol This is 5 x 7.

  1. You did a good job with this painting Joan. I know what you mean about the perspective thing, it can get to be a nightmare sometimes. You chose a great subject with this one.

  4. Joan, I love doing things with perspective these days. I had a great book on it when I was trying to do my at home art study course. Anyway, the grounds and home are so lovely!! You found the perfect place to paint! I am with Hilda; I also love character-filled old houses.
