Coloring this one was a little harder than it might seem. Stucco is always a challenge because of its lack of definition. I tried to use color variation to indicate texture and I think it turned out well. Thank heavens for the greenery though. It would have looked awfully stark, or just much plainer, without the addition of the shrubs. However, I must admit I am partial to having living landscaping around any building. The tile roof was a first for me too. It was a kind of pinky, orange color which tied in nicely with the brick sidewalk accents. Anyway, it’s already packaged and off in the mail tomorrow.
I received another Christmas home portrait commission last week. It should be fun to do and now I don’t have to make a decision on my next project. I pick up the pictures today and will start the pencil sketch tomorrow. My goal is to have it ready to go out next Monday. Quick work, but doable.
