Eldon House

Eldon House (6" x 9" Ink and Graphite) Today’s paintout location was London's oldest residence, Eldon House. This home sits on a piece of high ground, in the middle of the city, overlooking the forks of the Thames. Inside, this beautiful historic home contains family heirlooms and furniture from the Harris family. Outside, a 19th century garden has been recreated, truly a place of beauty and tranquility.

This summer, Eldon House will celebrate its 175th birthday. There are special Canada Day Celebrations in the plans for this year.

This detailed ink drawing was completed on location this afternoon.
