Sketchy Victorian

My sketchy Victorian painting was done this past January 2017. I needed an additional painting for a formal art show and this was it. This original was the first to sell. It’s very sketchy!  Everything is done loosely--no straight lines, lines don’t connect and broad strokes of color give this painting a happy look. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

San Diego Victorian

While visiting San Diego last August, I found some time to sketch this beautiful Victorian building near Balboa Park. This building is a tax and financial office. I sent the owners a card of this image and they offered to purchase the original painting. They received the painting and hopefully have it hung inside. SOLD

A Handsome Victorian Home

This painting was done for a friend of ours. She likes Victorian homes so I produced this for her. A dramatic sky seems to liven up this old home along with its paint scheme. There are so many of these beautiful homes in existence. The detail in their construction is amazing. For an artist, a building like this takes a while to produce. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

A San Francisco Hill

This painting shows a typical landscape found in the city of San Francisco. The structure on a hill is typical of this area but the long flight of stairs seems unique. When the sun is shining over this city everything comes to life unlike when the fog and clouds hover overhead. I drew this from an old manual and not on site. I added my own colors to give the scene more brilliance. One of these days I hope to see this area in person to see if my color of the house matches the color chosen by the owners. Ink and watercolor.

Yellow Victorian AGAIN

I redrew this image of a yellow Victorian home that I saw near Colorado Springs. As I began to draw, I felt I had just recently been there - like yesterday, even though it had been three years since I took this photo. This sense of deja-vu is common to many of us. This feeling has probably been sensed by many of you. Strange how the mind can work. I hope you enjoy this yellow Victorian beauty. Ink and watercolor.

A Countryside Victorian

I did this sketch in my journal of part of a beautiful yellow Victorian residence that I found on a trip into Colorado. This home is just north of Colorado Springs. The amazing part about this home is that it looks so out of place in the countryside alongside farms and other normal country homes. Even though it looked out of place, it still looked beautiful. Hopefully, I can do a large rendering of this one of these days. Ink and watercolor.

Lincoln Victorian

This very noticeable Victorian home in downtown Lincoln makes people do a double-take when they pass it. The purple paint job is quite striking. I discovered it one day while driving
around looking for things to draw. I did the painting and it sold along with my Auburn Victorian (posted October 2009 on this site) at my last art exhibit.

Our friends Joe and Cindy Moore have both of the Victorians nicely framed and hanging in their home. Ink and watercolor. SOLD

Auburn Victorian

During a hot summer day at a plein air paint out, our group was up in Auburn, California, for our weekly outing. On one of the back streets of the town, we came across this totally redone Victorian home which is an office for attorneys. The detail is fantastic in this old home. I drew for about an hour in order to finish the basics so I could get out of the heat. When I returned home I used images from my camera to finalize the painting. 11" x 14", ink and watercolor. SOLD

Old Victorian

This post is another oldie from my past but updated with digital color. My drawings were very tight and detailed. I have tried to loosen up on some of my current work but I do like going back to this style where I just "noodled" for hours. I used Rapidograph Pens on Illustration Board.
