Drawing this series of eight houses was unusual in that I went out looking for something specific to draw: large houses in Magnolia that could be seen easily from the street. There were other interesting homes that were partially obscured by hedges, or too close to other houses, so I didn't choose them. Some were tempting but you looked down on them from the road above, and I wanted these drawings to all to have the same POV-- looking up at them from a lower vantage point, since they'll be viewed together as a set. I had to wait for clear days so there would be shadows to help define them. Now that it's getting warmer, I'll be glad to get on the bike and go draw something else, someWHERE else.
