Southern Plantation

Some times I like to deviate from my normal work and try something different. This 5 x 7 watercolor is a South Carolina Plantation with a few artistic freedoms added for effect.  I don't often paint structures or buildings but this old southern mansion stood out as something I thought would look good in a painting. I kept the style of this piece a bit loose and sketched as one would do if painting on site. Who knows, maybe I'll use this in a larger work some day. I know this has nothing to do with fish or flies but figured I'd share it anyway.

This is all very inspiring. Is 63 years old too old to learn how to paint?
