HOUSE PORTRAIT

Topics: house portraits, old photographs, painted on commission, snow, watercolor, winter

This is an older house painted from very old photographs. I removed the people shoveling the driveway and tidied the snow on the stairs and sidewalk.

Many times old photographs are all that are available; this is not a problem if vital details are clear. The photograph can be up-dated by notes supplied by the client so the result is a portrait as the home appears today. Other times, the look desired is the house as it was many years agao. Either idea will work well if the appropriate details are provided.
