Front Porches

There are a couple of wonderful streets in old town Gaithersburg, where the homes are all different and most are Victorian looking, and every single one of them has its own charm. The front porches are so inviting, and most of the yards are filled with flowers. It's a great place to wander and take pictures. This is a little sketch with marker and watercolor, just because it's fun to play.

Charming rendition of this old Victorian house. I spent summers in PA as a child and loved spending the warm summer evenings on everyones big front porches. They were like another room, fully furnished! Porches are not that way in So. CA for some unknown reason. Your watercolors are so lovely!
