Original House Portrait From Photo

I was commissioned to paint this lovely century old farmhouse in Orton, Ontario by the homeowners who wanted a winter view. Before making the two-hour trip out into the country to take photos to use as reference for the painting back in my studio, I asked the homeowners what time of day the sun shines on the front of the house. I took many photos of the home to use as reference and chose this view to paint. I loved the magnificent stonework that had been chiseled by hand and creatively laid by a local artisan with love and pride in his work. The old farmhouse had been completely re-designed by architects and remodelled with a new wing added in a magnificent contemporary style yet preserving the charm and character of the original design. With the low angle of the Canadian winter sun shining on the home, I was able to paint the details of those beautiful rocks. The vibrant colors and long shadows create the drama in the painting.
