Not Batman’s House

July 26th, 2006

Well this will teach me to repeat something I’ve heard before vetting it through Google. I was told that this shell of a house was the house featured as the Bruce Wayne manor on the late 60s TV series Batman. However, a little searching reveals that Batman’s house was actually down the block and was, in fact, purchased a little while ago by Sir Paul McCartney (and is perfectly intact, thank you very much.) This house was owned by another unfortunate family and it was undergoing renovation when the blaze occurred. Thankfully they were not home, nor had they moved their possessions into it. I do hope they will continue renovating it and will have many happy years there.

I painted this view yesterday, looking across the arroyo in a different direction 90 degrees to the previous view. Although it was done within an hour or so of the other sketch, the color of the sky is decidedly different. The hillside was a jumble of chapparal natives and dry grass, making an interesting patchwork pattern. This sketch, like yesterday’s, is approx 4.5″ x 6″ and painted with a Niji waterbrush and tube paints.

  1. I’m convinced that your beautiful work could be painted with soil and saliva and STILL be outstandingly beautiful!! Another beauty!

  2. Lin, you are so funny! Well you have set a challenge for me, that’s for sure. I don’t know about the spit part, but I will see if I can do a monochromatic painting with mud and water. Since many pigments are derived from ground rocks and minerals anyway, this should be fun to try!

  3. Karen, I do so love your work!!! Your watercolours are so loose and fresh and not overworked. Very full of atmospere too. Thanks for visiting me and leaving a comment too.

  4. These two turned out great! I was just out myself doing a quick oil sketch and all it made me realize yet again is that I am no landscape painter. But the process of being outside and looking hard and racing the clock is very enjoyable.

  5. Well, now, Batman wouldn’t let you know exactly which house was his anyway. :-)
    Great painting — you must paint like lightening, though!

  6. Guess I was one that passed on that false information. Heard it one the news… so of course it was so. I like Linda’s idea that Batman would never bother to let on they were wrong.
