Paint Jobs

Last month, we had the house painted.  The old paint was peeling off and just looked terrible.  Last year, we put a new roof on the house.  Now, we’ve got a fresh coat of paint.  Plus, we directed the painters to pay close attention to the bas-relief, especially its flowery pattern.

Here’s a close-up of the bas-relief.

I was so moved, I just had to draw the house in my sketchbook.

Still moved, I decided it was time to start experimenting with some watercolor pencils.
