If you want to draw or paint a classic American style home, I think that this painting would make a great photo reference.
USE WATERCOLOR PAPER
Whenever you watercolor, it's important to use watercolor paper. Watercolor paper is heavier and is good at properly absorbing moisture. It will not tear or pill.
Here's another classic American style home that would be fun to paint. I love how they added trees behind the house.
What an amazing painting this is. I love the addition of the overgrown landscape around the house.
Here's a painting of a brick style home. The greenery really help this picture to stand out.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR BRUSHES
When you start with watercolor, you may feel that you need a large assortment of brushes. This isn't true.
Certain types of brushes will give you different results. To start, you'll want to have the following brushes: a spotter brush, round brush, flat brush, mop brush, liner brush, and a fan brush.
If you own these seven types of brushes, you'll be off to a good start.
If you're looking for a unique drawing style, I love the picture in the middle that has flowers and trees bordering the house.
The thing I like about this painting is that it gives you an closeup look at the house and its details.
This house and landscape design has a very clean appearance using muted colors and straight lines.
START LIGHT THEN GO DARK
When you watercolor, you'll want to start with light colors and work your way towards the darker shades.
It would be best if you did this because once you apply the dark colors, it's more difficult to undo any errors.
There's much detail in this painting, I absolutely love it. This painting would be suitable for the advanced artist.
This small house painting looks gorgeous. I love the tree at the front of the house and the brushes as well.
This picture reminds me of the houses in London. If you love that house style, you'll love using this reference.
MIXING YOUR PAINT
When mixing paint, it's good to mix more paint than you think you'll need. That's because if you run out of the color, it won't be easy to get the exact shade that you were using previously.
I find this drawing to be so creative and unique. What a beautiful art style that would also make a great gift.
It would be great to sit in front of your house and do a beautiful painting like this. The colors of the landscaping are wonderful.
Not only do you get a great house in the wilderness reference, but there's also a beautiful painting of the mountains.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PAPER TOWELS
As you are working on your paintings, you'll find that it's beneficial to have paper towels on hand.
You can use them to clean and dab your brush. You can also use paper towels to dab your paper while you work.
The color combinations used in this painting look so beautiful together. This reminds me of a house that you would see in a sunny environment like Florida.
This painting of the Flourish and Blotts bookstore looks amazing. If you don't know, this is a bookstore in Harry Potter.
I thought it would be fun to not only included houses, but also shops, such as this lovely shopping center.
USE MASKING TAPE
If you want clean edges on your project, use masking tape to frame your painting.
It's essential to make sure you have a tight seal on the tape so that paint doesn't get through and ruin your clean edge.
Here's a perfect example of using your house or a family members home as a reference for your painting.
I love painting like this because while they are simple and don't include a lot of detail, they are still beautiful paintings.
