Steps #3

6" x 4" original watercolor

I enjoy the look of old clap board buildings.
Especially the ones from the Shaker Villages.
They always look like they could use a fresh
coat of paint. The steps do not look "up to
code" and yet have lasted a hundred years.

I am very late getting my blog painted today.
I am not sure what happened. The day just
got away from me. I spent extra time on my
drawing this morning. Then needed to stop
to work on my track roster. Got home late from
track and needed to get ready for dance class.
And it was 8:30 till I was back home. I got
right to my painting but it just took time. Keep
in mind all the white is the paper and even that
has light washes on it. Off to bed...

I really like this. I love your composition, the way you cropped the old house. I also love old houses. Barb
