Research is not only an important part of being an artist it is one of the fun activities with no stress. I’ve been looking for photos of cottages to put into our painting of a town. I have collected some Australian miners’ cottages to give us some ideas. I’m sure you will enjoy studying these and exploring the way they have been built. All of this will help you paint them into your painting.
Do some research of your own and find some cottages you might like to paint.
