I have been working on a new watercolor painting.
Through the class that I am taking, Linn is helping us to learn how to take notes about the details,
and to look for light and shadows.
I love the idea of working in Cepia tones.
Located in lovely Sandwich is this wonderful old museum. A Cedar Shake roof
and rusting hinges on the door and windows only add to it's New England charm.
I chose Hoxie House as my subject. It is situated on a tree lined driveway,
overlooking a beautiful pond.
Some preliminary sketches with my brush,
Then I edited it to bring out even more shadows.
I will keep you updated on my progress. I am taking this one slowly and really enjoying the process.
Hoxie House in Sandwich, Massachusetts is the one of the oldest houses in the USA. This house dates back from the late 1600's and is furnished with objects from that time. The place has always fascinated me, and I can't help but wonder what memories this cottage holds. If you click HERE, you can see lovely panoramic views. If you are someone who loves American history, here is the timeline for this house, and the surrounding historical places.
The song for this post is Pilgrim.
It's Monday so it must be Mosaic Monday over at Mary's place.
