House Portrait Round Up

As excited as I am to go away, I am also a little bit sad to be saying goodbye to my house portraits. I’ve been doing them for over a year now, and they are still one of my favourite things to paint. I love bringing the architecture to life with flowers and foliage and cats in the window.  I love receiving all the photographs of the different characters and styles of houses from all over the world – and I love the stories that come with them: the first wedding anniversary present, the long-loved holiday home in the South of France, the present for the parents leaving the family home for a retirement village.

The homes we live in are so much more than brick and mortar, and I really hope that my portraits portray that. As a farewell to them, I’ve taken a look through all my portraits (I’ve done over 50!) and chosen some of my favourites to share on here. I hope you like taking a look through them just as much as I enjoyed painting them!

  1. These are fantastic, you are so talented! What medium do you use? Watercolour and pens? I can’t wait to see what you paint on your travels, I have a lovely set of watercolours which I use for homemade cards and brightening up travel journals (but they are nowhere near as good as these!)
