Congratulations Elizabeth Henning!

Watercolor house portraits #300Z
This lovely Georgian house has been commissioned by Elizabeth Henning of her home. Because the commission entails to works of art, one in watercolor, and the other in pen & ink, it was a great way to do one in color and the other in pen & ink. The two pieces are of the same house but from different angles. The perspective of these renderings will be discussed below.
Pencil Drawing For Watercolor House Portraits #300Z
Below are two pencil drawings of the Henning home. The top sketch is of the façade, and coach entry of the home. This is truly and grand old estate and beautiful in every way. The proportions, the scale, and the position on the lot are all well done.
Of course the pencil drawings lay out the foundation of the house portrait, much like the basement of a house.

The pen & ink drawings below show the façade and side of the home. This property is located on a corner lot and it really showcases the architecture. I have employed the use of hatching and cross-hatching to bring out the shade and shadows of the home.
The nice thing about doing a drawing of a home like this is that you cannot go wrong. Because no matter how you draw it, the rendering always look great because of the beauty of the home. Most importantly, I always find it a challenge to get a simple suburban ranch to look like this!
The watercolor rendering is the final product and I have to say that it look just grand! This house is truly a lady of grace and high station.
