Landscape,A House, by Sirkka Jalava

This house is a challenge to paint. I took the challinge and tried to get everything on its right place and relation. It is not an art work, I can say. But I am glad I have done it and have learned a lot of house painting. It is spring here now and it is lovely.

  2. I think you did a great job on your house! Look at it again in a couple of weeks and I bet you'll see all the wonderful details and value you created. ;)

  3. This is a stately house! I especially like the colors you chose, even the purples in the ground in front! Did you do this live or from a photo? I like the challenge of drawing houses/ building on site. I think it brings out their personality more! I'm glad to hear it's spring where you are now and picturing you being warm! Keep challenging yourself! Houses like you!

    1. Thank you Lynn! Since Somewhere to sketch -a fantastic blog- I have not painted any houses, so I wanted to challenge myself now. It is done from live and photo, surely the site gives much personality to the house. At last we can enjoy the spring ( at least from time to time!). Yes, I will challenge myself with houses and landscapes this summer:)
