The last one done

watercolored

The triplex finished and off to its new home.  Since this was pretty monochromatic, I added color in the landscaping with the flowers, echoing the yellow doors.  I added some reds and mauves in the shrubs and trees as well as the shadows.  For a simple structure, it came put pretty well.

I think I am going to use my acrylics next and paint some small fruit pieces.  After seven weeks of architectural commission work, I need a change of pace.  I’ll put them into my etsy store when I’m finished.  I haven’t added anything new since well before Christmas due to the portrait work (not that I am complaining) and I need to.

    I love the little pops of color. You were very wise to add them. Again I am so impressed by your precision and ability to create the details. They are so important in this type of art.

      Thanks, Linda. The door color was of particular concern for the buyer, but the rest was up to me. With an all gray building I really wanted to add some color and landscaping provided the opportunity. I do love my inks.
