Odds and ends

Colorful Victorian

Colorful Victorian

I’ve been working on some small projects this week. I made up a few more cards with the watercolor inserts  and decided to package them up as 3 card sets to sell in my etsy shop.

And then I went looking for for something larger.  I don’t know if I showed this in the ink phase but last fall I started on this Victorian home before all of the Christmas commissions came in.  I had inked it up and the watercolor started.  I thought the original white siding in the photo was too boring so I decided to make it more of a painted lady.  I don’t know how successful it is turning out.  I like the reds for the brick and the roof, but I am not sure about the green/yellow shingle siding.  I didn’t want to make it too yellow, but in the end, I think it is a bit too green.  I do like the turquoise trim with the reds.  I’ll have to think a bit on how to change the siding.  I’ve fussed with it today and it still needs work ’cause I’m just not happy yet.

    Ruth, The color combination looks fine to me except the lower pinkish section which might be better in the dark red.

    Beautiful! I can’t decide about the color combination – though I agree the turquoise and red is really nice. It has all the charm of a multicolored house – and they are often a sort of funny mix of colors. Of course, it should be whatever color you like best. 🙂

    The color is great! Your choices work very well together.
