The Plumber's Pipes Always Leak


I have sketched and painted dozens of homes over the years but like the plumber's pipes I never seem to get around to my own - until now. 

The painting - 18"x12" watercolor on 140# cold press. A quick and sloppy plein air of our house as seen from the neighbor's front yard. This was an exercise in painting as fast as I can and with an almost vertical easel. I usually paint on a slight angle so this made for an even sloppier watercolor than normal.
