Once again, I have been forced to endure the folly of the time change. I sure miss the years when Indiana sat it out. I just see no reason for it these days.
Anyway, after the last watercolor architectural, I wanted to try another smallish one. I thought it had turned out fairly well, so I upped the size a bit and went from there. I’m going to sneak up on the 14×10 my client wants in the spring. I have lots of pictures from a trip to Key West. Florida, years ago and I sorted through them, looking for interesting house shapes and foliage. I like the vibrant colors mixed with the semi-tropical landscaping.
This one had some of the most bent palm trees I have ever seen. They almost seemed to be dancing in the yard. The shutters of the house are on the pinkish side against gray clapboards. There wasn’t much in the way of flowers, but I may decided to put in a few more. How much color I’ll add will depend on how I like the way the house turns out. The shutters are pretty loud in and of themselves and I want to have some cohesion in the picture.
