Close To Home - Wimblington

32a Doddington Road, Wimblington © Anita Davies

Another addition to the Close To Home project is this fairly new property along Doddington Road in Wimblington, a crisp, stylish home with lots of grand wrought iron and a curved brick entrance.

I sketched this one from the truck too, parking in Church Street facing it head on.

I was about halfway through the painting stage when the owner returned home with some shopping, as she emptied her boot I could see her looking over so when I'd finished I walked over to introduce myself in case my presence had made her uneasy.

Did she see the painting you did of her house or the sketch?

Ooooh I love this one too...such grand homes!

No Jeanne, I left it in the truck and she didn't ask to see it but my Mum bumped into her neighbour and apparently she is very excited to see what I have done.
I guess I didn't force it on her out of politeness and she didn't ask to see it for the same reason. LOL!

I think iron work always gives a grand touch to a property Margaret. I loved the tall windows, they had little iron works at their base too!

I like all your house paintings, but the colors in this are particularly appealing.
