Almost inked storefront

Inked shop front

The inking has almost been finished on the Jasper store front.  I just have the signage and the left background to do.  I am looking forward to using the watercolors on this one.  It has red brick with white brick patterned in across the top and under the windows.  Once again, the trim will be a light green and yellow but a band of painted brick also carries across the top.  I wonder if the shops here got together and coordinated the color schemes.

All of these details will be harder to paint, but it will make this shop streetscape unique.  Once it’s done, it will go into my etsy store.  Two of my Jasper drawings have been sold, so it appears that some townspeople appreciate their lovely town square as much as I do.

Another Jasper streetscape

Another Jasper storefront

I looked at the date of my last post and couldn’t believe it has been a month since then.  Such was my May.  We had one out of town family move and another period helping an elder family member start the process to downsize and move into a more assisted living situation.  I think I spent about as much time out of town as in.

But now I’m back to the drawing table with an old standard.  I really love this small town main square.  Jasper has one of the most colorful downdowns I have seen in Indiana and I love depicting all of the colors of the buildings.  Here is the pencil up of another red brick/green trim shop.  Let the inking begin.
