House Portrait From Google Street View

I was commissioned to paint this magnificent Ohio home in watercolor as a Christmas gift from a husband to his wife. Apparently, these empty nesters are planning to move from the home where they raised their children. My watercolor portrait of their home will hang in their new home as a gentle daily reminder of the family stories and cherished moments etched in their memories that were enjoyed there.

Since he did not have a suitable photo of their home, this resourceful gentleman researched on Google Maps and discovered that Google's street views of the home seemed to be good. After contacting me, I had a look at the online views of the home and determined that the photos were suitable for using as reference for a home portrait. Only a few little glitches needed to be tweeked. The perspective required adjusting, the roof line needed to be aligned, trees needed to be adjusted to show the front entrance and hidden areas of the home. Google's images showed a late summer view of the home and gardens which I was requested to change to a spring view. The gentleman emailed me a copy of his chosen view on which he had circled trees and shrubs that required transformation to show spring blossoms and blooms.


The painting is wonderful! I love it! Beautiful choices on the colors and on the front door! It looks exactly right.
