For some reason this seemed to take forever for me to ink in. I kept messing around with the detailing before I used the pen and I hope I haven’t scraped up the finish too much with all of the erasing. Watercolors are more sensitive to the surface than the pastels, so I will find out shortly. I’m happy with the way it turned out and look forward to putting on the brick’s reds and the trim’s yellows and greens. I like the daring of whomever made the paint choices. As I have said in the past, I think white is often for people who can’t choose a color. This streetscape is boldly wonderful.
We lucked out with the latest winter storm as it went mostly south and we ended up with only a slippery dusting. There is now hope of seeing the ground again as warmer temperatures should melt most of the remaining snow and ice this weekend – I hope. I may actually get my car out first of the week and not be dependent on the 4wd truck.
