Whether your house is an old charmer, a stunning modern, or anywhere in between, you can make a drawing that is a portrait of all its special qualities. Draw your house at different times of year as well, and get some of those landscape and garden elements in. Trees, in particular, change from season to season, and can change the way a house looks dramatically.
Old or new, every house has something unique to recommend it. On your next trip abroad, take along a sketchbook to study perspective in centuries' old forms and structures. You'll get some great drawing practice, and have a wonderful travel journal through which to remember your journey.
Take your time when drawing a house—and take the time to draw it more than once, at different times of year.
