4"x6" Original Watercolor
This is the town our wedding was held in.
It is simply a pleasant back yard scene.
Part 11 - the window
I used a pencil and drew around the negative
areas (the white parts) so I knew what I wanted
to save. I started in the center row, using
Cad. Red and Cad Yellow, I did a light wash, drying
well. Then for the bottom panes I mixed Hookers
Green and yellow in a wash. Drying and adding
several layers of the mixture getting darker green
and layering shades as I go. Pushing in texture
by adding Pthalo Green and Burnt Umber. For the
top panes I used the same mixture and made it
thinner (more water) and added a touch of
Paynes Grey. To finish the flowers, a thin mixture
of Cobalt Blue and Per. Rose to touch up around
the flowers, darker in the bottom paynes. Around the
window I used Paynes Grey to intensify the white.
This step took several hours, a wash then dry it,
another wash and dry it... taking my time and building
the washes. You can click over the photo to have a
