porch roof


Detail of our porch roof as seen from the swing. Thought I would use color when I began this drawing, but it was late afternoon, and I'd forgotten how fast the light goes away at this time of year. By the time I had the shapes mapped out for myself, the sun was behind the house across the street.

I'd love to come swing on your porch -- what a beautiful place!

Incredible, Liz! Love the detail and attention you paid--not slavish, though. It feels as if you were very present to me.

This is wonderful just as it is---the ink details are so interesting. :)

Thank you all. Sometimes I think the front porch is the best part of our rambling house. We live in a neighborhood of porches, which leads us all to talk to one another - generally a good thing, and a real advantage to city living. You all are welcome to come by any time.
