On New Castle Island

New Castle is a well preserved colonial island town, settled in 1623 and just a stones throw from Portsmouth. It is New Hampshire's smallest town. The houses are mostly old colonials and capes ...the streets are narrow and winding. In this painting the houses and the road help point the way to the center of interest...the distant house with the red roof . The format is 2 square...4.5 " x 8.5 and can be easily transferred to a 12 x 24 " canvas if I decide to do an oil painting of this scene.

Watercolor 4.5 x 8.5"
