HOUSE PORTRAITS

I've been painting houses throughout my entire art career, both on commission and on speculation. If you enjoy the visual delights of architecture there is no way to avoid this enterprise. I am most comfortable working with watercolor when painting architecture, although I am slowly gaining more confidence using acrylics.

This next series of posts will be devoted to some of the house portraits of the past.

All three are just beautiful, Bill. I really like the way you leave parts unfinished sometimes with just the line drawing.

They don't make new houses like this anymore...our loss. The tall and narrow design is very picturesque.
