After a short vacation, I headed back to the studio this week and finished up the streetscape this week. I enjoyed painting the red and brown bricks once again and the teal highlights. However, I have decided that maybe the scale of the drawing is not quite what I want. The size of the buildings in this small painting makes it difficult to add very much detail. The other corner streetscape that I did of this size was basically one building and I think it was easier to be subtle in the colorings. I am not unhappy with this, just not as happy as I could be. Maybe the solution is to take a single storefront again.
Here’s a link back to the other watercolor. https://ruthsartwork.wordpress.com/2013/10/23/the-watercolors-won/
