The Historic Howey Mansion

Ink and Watercolor 10 x 12 Arches 140 Cold Press

Today our Fine Arts group from Hawthorne park got together at the Historic Howey Mansion here in Central Florida in Howie-in-the-Hills.  

This was a really quick sketch with an .03 Micron pen and then watercolor.  About 45 minutes total.  This was the back of the house where there is a garden house.  

The mansion was built in 1925 by citrus grower William Howey.  Now, all these years later it is hopefully going to get restored and used again.  
You can find some wonderful info and photo on the Facebook page.  Click here.

We were given a guided tour of the inside.  I took a ton of photos and I will share some later, but there are really good ones on the FB page too.
