Our Well House

This is a plein aire painting of the little well house behind our place.
From the day we moved in I have adored this little tiny shack that
our well is enclosed in. So last weekend I moved my easel, pencils,
paints and brushes out to my comfy loungc chair and sketched then
painted a tribute to our Well House. I used the same technique
I've been working on - doing a detailed graphite sketch first to
use as a value map and then adding the layers of transparent
watercolors on top. I was very pleased with it - probably as much
for the sentimental value as the technical accomplishments :)
