beginning of "historic house" - 12" square

This is just the beginning of this painting......I am roughing it out. Beaufort has many amazing historic homes but many of them are located in very "close" enviornments which do not allow one to get back far enough to get any perspective or distance from them without stepping in the intra-coastal canal or  onto a neighbor's porch. In this case I have found the distortion of the camera lens to be helpful. I usually become annoyed by the distortion and rarely rely on photos of the landscape I have just painted, prefering to return to the site if I need to do so.
