I pretty much finished up the drawing today. I think I’ll let it rest a day or two and then go back to make a few additions.
The colors are a little washed out in the photo so I will also retake them later before I list it in my shop. I did it outside and although the sun wasn’t overly bright, the limestone accent blocks are really much more textured, as is the foliage. I don’t know what the problem is with the light today. And now it is starting to rain, so I can’t take it back outside in the evening light. Not complaining, mind you, as I will happily take a gentle soaking rain for quite some time.
I will play a little with the shadowing, especially on the lower left behind the flowers.I also need to texture the door finish a bit more. It comes off as a little flat to me. I did put in some yellow highlights, but the spray fixative kind of washed them out. I may do it with the colored pencil and not respray as the pencil won’t smear like the pastel does.
