Is That House Abandoned?


When I'm painting a house, I'm always curious who lives there.


They usually don't notice me at all—or they pretend not to. But sometimes they come near to check out what I'm doing.


In this case I assumed the house was abandoned. I had never seen anyone come or go from there. Over the years, the house has been falling farther and farther into ruin. So I was surprised when there were signs of life (Link to video on YouTube).

James,
Your latest is again great. I've watched them all now and I am amazed at the amount of creative information you pack into these brief lessons. After a couple years with watercolor and gouche I can safely say I learn more from watching these than some that go on for an hour. I did purchase your "Gouche in the Wild" series. It cemented your place as one of my favorites. Thank you for sharing your gifts. Keep up the good work.
God bless.

I love the music and the lighting for this one too. So much fun. I was working on a portrait recently and it was going poorly, in the back of my mind I heard your voice from a previous video saying, trust the process. Glad I followed that advice because the double portrait worked out great in the end. Thanks for the great videos and advice!
