House and pole - day 1

I'm inexplicably fascinated with the utility pole sketched here. I posted a watercolor study of it a few days ago. Now I'd like to incorporate it into a larger work. And I do mean larger: this one is 16" x 20," much bigger than normal for me. So it will take me several days.

Here's how it looks after a couple hours of work. I'm still working out the drawing and light-shadow pattern of the house, and I plan much more detail in the fall foliage. And yes, I want utility wires and such. Should be fun.
