A Bethville Version of a Nuneaton Building

A Bethville Version of a Nuneaton Building – 3″ x 5″ Watercolor & Ink

As you may have guessed,  this building is black and white in real life.  Old Rock Chick (Lin) from WetCanvas posted the photo in her WDE last weekend.  I do have to admit that I probably have 3 hours in this one.  The lamp post came from another of Lin’s photos.  I love that lamp post!  Lin lives in the UK and they have very ornate architecture there.  So fun to paint!!

About Rita Mae Brown

American author Rita Mae Brown became a pioneer of lesbian-themed fiction with the publication of her first novel, the best-selling Rubyfruit Jungle. She was born in 1944 in Pennsylvania and ultimately settled in Virginia, where most of her novels take place. After she lost a college scholarship due to her political activism, she briefly lived in an abandoned car with a friend and a cat named Baby Jesus. Her many novels include a mystery series “co-written” with her cat, Sneaky Pie.
