This is my contribution to your projects competition Old Buildings.
It is called English Cottage, and is a watercolour painted with a wet on wet method. It is from a book I have on English houses.
This painting is looser then I usually paint. Maybe all the yard junk got me working looser. I don't know. It's on a half sheet Waterford.

This is an old house now abandoned inside the fence and walls that surround the historical castle and other ruins in Byblos, Lebanon. I added a few palm trees. The paper is 140 pound Arches cold press rough and I used Daniel Smith paints with a bit of sepia ink on the windows and doors.
Thank you for this challenge...think I will try a few other old buildings...maybe some from the trip I took with my daughter and the houses we took photos of in Saint Joseph, MO.
This is painted from an image of an old grain elevator east of Havre, Montana on highway 2. It appears to be the product of several generations of add ons. It is painted on a full sheet.
Painted on post card size paper with American Journey watercolors and ink. This route cellar is at the Fox Fire Museum in Mountain City, Georgia. It is grounded inthe Southern Appalachian culture and if you are ever in the area it is a must see.
This is a painting of the tram house at the Buffalo Boy Mine that is located in the San Juan Mountains above the town of Silverton, Colorado--well above-12,000 ft. I took a photo for this painting two years ago, and have finally gotten around to getting it on watercolor paper--Arches 140# rough. It had been several years since I had painted on rough, using mostly CP--but I liked the rough--much better for texture. The size is 22" x 30". Here is a link to a site that has a bit more information about the Buffalo Boy Mine: http://www.ghosttowns.com/ states/co/buffaloboymine.html
Old French house made new....painted on Arches 140 CP with Daniel Smith, Holbein, Schmincke and Winsor Newton watercolors.....
Thanks for the project!
