These Portraits are extremely time comsuming and take me a month to paint. Typically they are done with a composition where the house and the surrounding scape are equal in importance. Many times I completely change the surrounding scape of the house to make it an idealized version of the home! For this style of House Portrait I prefer to go and do a photoshoot of your home. 3 of the five were actually painted on Wooden Shutters... which is why you see the lines through them!!!
