Painted Rows of Houses

I have been working on some new rows of houses over the last couple of weeks. As in my printmaking and paintings I have a thing for bockety houses and  I can’t resist using lots of colours just as houses in rural irish villages & towns are painted to this day.

They are carved from offcuts from the local shed builder  – he gives me firewood but I am always on the lookout for pieces of wood that could make good miniature buildings.

After marking out on the pieces of wood what could go where, they are carved and the chimneys are added.

Image

Then I paint them, each house individually with three coats with tones of terracotta for the chimneys.

Image

and finally the details are painted – the doors and every single window pane

Image

There are a few available at the moment:

Image

this row of three houses: measuring approx 12cm in length and 4cm in height, cost £50 + p&p

Image

this row of eight #2: measuring approx 29cm in length and 5cm in height, cost £125 + p&p

Image

row of five: measuring approx 18cm in length and 5cm in height, cost £75 + p&p

Image

this row of eight #1: measuring approx 29cm in length and 5cm in height, cost £125 + p&p

Think of them as 3D original paintings, that can sit on shelves or ledges or door surrounds or they are so light they can be just blu-tacked to the wall or even put in a box frame.

 

some new ones…..
