Tiny Home

One day I’d love to live in a tiny home. Okay, maybe a tiny home with a tiny studio next to it… But until then I try and search out tiny homes to stay in once in a while. Like this small mushroom dome home in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Fits 3, superbly designed inside, and right by a redwood grove. I started this first sketch and abandoned it because I didn’t think it was working out. Wish I stayed with it, I think it was going someplace different from sketch #2, which is more predictably what I would do.

This is the beautiful but highly invasive pampas grass you see all over California.It was challenging to try and leave the whites to be paper on something so feathery, and yet paint loosely around it. You can see I went back in with white gouache on tiny bits of it.

Happy Friday!

    Looks simply beautiful and magical. Little house have big worlds inside, I’m afraid of big houses full of emptyness
