Figuring out Tom's farmhouse

Whenever a design has me stumped or overwhelmed, I get back to basics. Tom and his wife Alice from the Davy Otter universe need a farmhouse. Buildings can be a handful to see mentally and put on paper. When that happens, I work in silhouette instead. If the building doesn't look good in total shadow, chances are it won't be that great after all the color and lighting. This is a great way of saving time so one doesn't waste energy chasing a design that was already boring in shadow.
