Coburg Home

18″ x 24″ 140 lb. watercolor paper
Private Collection

I did this painting as a commission for a friend. She wanted it as a Christmas present for her husband. The home is in the small town of Coburg just outside of Eugene, Oregon.

I took about 20 reference photos early in the morning with the sun coming up. After some discussion with the owner we decided on this composition.

I took out some of the trees on the left that obscured much of the second floor of the house. Although I simplified a few things, the painting represents the charm of the home.
