Red brick in the mail

Red brick ranch

Red brick ranch

After several rounds of watercoloring, the brick ranch is finally finished.  The brick was a solid red with no variations which is always a little harder. There are no subtle color combinations to move the eye around the facade, so I had to use the shutters, quoins and set back entry to help do that.   Because this is only an 8×6 drawing, the smallish doorway got lost in the shadows of the porch.  I used a narrow white line to bring it back out.  I was rather pleased with the effect since the door had effectively disappeared and who doesn’t want to see the entry of their home.

It is off to its new home in Virginia, I think as a realtor gift.
