The guesthouse


The rain took a break day before yesterday, so I went out painting. I had to rush it a bit, since the wind was a bit too cold for my liking, but if felt good to get some work done.

The building is a guesthouse/restaurant nearby our summer house, it used to be the headquarters of the saw mill on the island during the first half of the 20th century.

20 x 20 cm, pencil and watercolours on Saunders Waterford watercolour paper.

I hope that this is a proper "I'm putting this on my wall" type painting because it is sOo perfectly, hangably beautiful.

I can never think of the right superlatives to comment on your work, Nina. Suffice it to say, I'm never disappointed when I come to your blog! This is great.

I wish you would post an "in progress" painting so we can "see how she does it" I am always thrilled to see something new on your blog.
