I have a thing for houses. If I see a card, a journal page or a painting of a house it just makes me happy.
I want to learn to draw houses. More than just a front view like I drew in first grade so I have started practicing. I find it easier to draw from a picture than from real life. I've found some line drawings on line and I'm using them to look at when I draw. I've also ordered a book of houses from Dover Publishing. Tracey Fletcher King suggested that tracing what I wanted to learn to draw might help so I thought I'd try that as well.
I saw a stamp with a whole neighborhood of house and it gave me the idea to try this little drawing. I have a small journal and I'm going to practice my houses in it with colored pencils and permanent markers. I tried watercolors and the paper is too thin. Once I get the hang of drawing them, I'll start adding more texture and then landscaping.
