Sunday Sketches; The Susan E. Anthony Home

My Project for the summer... Illustrating some of Rochester, New York's historical and favorite locations to visit. The first sketch was done on location at The Susan B. Anthony Home. It's very playful and I'm not worrying about perspective. I'm just trying to capture my enthusiasm for being out side, taking pictures and painting again. It is very whimsical.   

 Here are a few photographs my husband took, I think he was having fun too.

 Here is my first sketch (not the final painting) of The Susan B Anthony House.
So glad it's summer vacation, I was so ready for a change in my routine.  Happy to be participating in Suday Sketches today.
