I like this much better

With an ink wash

With an ink wash

After I let the black and white house set a few days, I decided it needed something else. The picture I had to use wasn’t great and the camera distortion was a bit much. The longer I looked at it, the more I felt this one looked too flat. Also, the house was a medium green with dark shutters and I didn’t feel that I reflected that well enough. The ink alone didn’t seem quite adequate so I decided to add a wash. Much better. I think I added enough depth to make it a much better picture.

Right now I am inking the last order.  It’s bigger at 16″ x 8″and a much more complicated house, but is progressing well.
