So after I did the one little sketch of the Mt. Dora Queen Anne style house at home and then did a little demo in class on gray toned paper...I decided to try to "collage" the two of them together.
Not sure if it was successful but it's kind of interesting.
Makes you look twice and think..."what?"
I interpreted the house a little differently in each sketch.
I have drawn this house several times over the years.
John P. Donnelly came to Mount Dora in 1879 from Pittsburgh, PA. He married Annie McDonald Stone in 1881 and built this Queen Anne style house in 1893 as a gift to her. He was among the founders of the local yacht club, and served as the city´s first mayor in 1910. The Donnelly House, now owned by Mount Dora Lodge #238, F&AM, was listed in the National Register of Historic Places on April 4, 1975.
