Fixer-Upper

Fixer-Upper, 8x10, Gouache

This old house in Roanoke, Texas has been on my list for the last few weeks.  Yesterday, I did a pretty complete pencil drawing directly on the board.  This morning, after a little DIY work on the RV, I set up the easel and went at it.  It felt good to do something a bit more “finished” for a change.

    Nice painting Ralph. These “along the way” subjects are often the most enchanting. Love the colors.
