Somewhere in Cambridge

This handsome orange house (authentic Victorian color scheme) is somewhere in Cambridge, and I sat for quite a while drawing it. The picture was finished in the studio as I did not usually take my watercolors with me on site. I would indicate what the colors were using watercolor pencils and then go over them with paint when I got home. This picture was a commission from the same collector friend in Texas who asked for the lilacs painting. I wonder whether this house still exists. 

Ink and watercolor on Fabriano paper, 15" x 15",  July 1985.
