Boathouses


I took a picture of these boathouses here in town in hopes of taking a stab at drawing them. Maybe evern painting them. Probably every local artist in the area has painted these. I've always admired their work and thought I'd love to own a print of it. I am no Christopher Wheat, but maybe I can eventually get there.

There just is something so peaceful about these houses on the water. I've been trying to understand and learn perspective drawing and this painting will be a good exercise.

Do you have an SLR (camera)? You are a good photographer!! There's another art form in which I'm sure you would excel.

I am always fascinated by boat houses. I love the calm water. I'm sure that you can paint that.
