A couple of weeks ago we went out to Jiggs to paint for the morning. I was so excited when I arrived
and saw the morning light on this old Ranch house built in 1914 originally for a Hotel but never used for that.
After getting my sketch book out and setting up all ready to paint I stood frozen ..... intimidated by the scene. I knew I just couldn't get it all into a painting with so much there, not to mention it's a structure that needs to be drawn with all the right angles! After doing one sketch ....putting it aside and starting another sketch I finally settled down and thought about what was exciting for me about this house....the porch and the morning sunlight. I was still worried it might look scary and gloomy with a dark shaded porch but I'm really very pleased with the way it turned out.
Thanks for Visiting!
