Well, after about 4 sessions on this small picture, I finally have the watercolors done.  It is easy to overdo a small piece, so I took my time.  After the initial washes, I spent several days adding more layers a little at a time.  It was not easy, but I am fairly happy with how it has turned out.

I added magenta to the shadowing to increase the color palette.  That orangy siding was really hard to work with and I needed to add some other color besides the ubiquitous greens.  Because of the risk of forest fires, I am sure, there was no close landscaping per se.  I managed to put in some small scrub trees and yellow flowers in the meadow surrounding the house.  That helped soften the hard lines of the house.
