Big Tree and Cottage


Here's another work break drawing from me. I went a little over the allotted 20 minutes to do this one. The cottage you see here has been remodeled which makes an asymmetrical silhouette to the front elevation. The roof to the right continues well beyond where my drawing ends. There is a large tree in front of the house which fortunately survived the violent "derecho" windstorm of early July. Note the also asymmetrical brick veneer  panels on the facade, which seem to be placed for no reason next to the window, in the middle of a large siding area. I am guessing that they remain from the facade of the original cottage before the rebuilding. The spindly structure at the right edge is a homemade bird feeder.

I love vernacular or amateur-built architecture but I suspect that many of my readers find my studies of it boring. More dragons and human figures are needed, I guess. But whose blog is this anyway.
