I sat outside today and painted the Red Cottage, my favorite of the Victorian cottages owned by Cape Resorts. It's got a lovely tower you can't see in my close up. Over three years of painting here, I've become much faster at painting architectural gingerbread.
Here's my set up. At 39 degrees, I figured none of the guests would be fighting me for a porch chair...
All the architectural gingerbread made me crave the real thing, so I warmed up afterwards with tea and a cookie.
