Windows and architecture of Colonial Period

We are visiting Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia and surrounding areas.  We are doing much sight-seeing and photo taking, as well as informative tours.  While having a lazy morning, I did this mini watercolor from one of my photos I took, while viewing on the laptop.

This is the Cookhouse of the Berkeley Plantation.  Although they built their homes out of brick they made on the plantation, the outbuildings here were plastered and painted a pink color over the bricks.  Green shutters were the thing back then.  They could close them during storms.
