Himmarshee Court

14x11. Oil/Linen Panel
SOLD


Himmarshee Court is a wonderful historic building that sat in ruins for years. It was restored and returned to its original beauty in 2004. A small group of us were kindly allowed to paint on the premises today. I did this south-west corner today en plein air. I couldn't help but feel the painting needed to have a story in it to bring my rendering to life.... Since it is not uncommon to see flocks of Ibis wandering our neighborhoods looking for grub, I added the Ibis when I returned home to my studio... I guess that makes this one 80% plein air, 20% studio...
