It's laid out in a gridded design, just like the ones I use on my sketchbook pages. The subjects are four of the prettiest front entries I found on my wanderings around Mount Lebanon, PA, during the plein air event last week.
I loved the green tile roof on House #1 (and the homeowners loved my painting so much that they purchased it on the opening night of the show!)
House #2 had lots of interesting detailing: a slate roof, unique brick work, an awning, flowers, stained glass windows, a flag, and window boxes.
The grand entrance on House #3 was irresistible. Just look at that gorgeous stonework!
And House #4 was just one of the cutest, most charming cottages I saw all week. A copper roof with a beautiful patina swooped up from the arched front door to a window box overflowing with dark red coleus and chartreuse sweet potato vines.The front yard was filled with exuberant masses of flowers, including an amazing elephant ear plant by the front door.
I'm glad this painting went to a good home!
