Architecture in Watercolor
Architecture has always been a special love of mine. My dad was an architect. Friends are having a big anniversary party here at the lake in early August and so I took a photo of their lovely home here with the idea of surprising them.
So first I did a tracing of the photo (on tracing paper) and now I am deciding the style in which I will portray the final drawing/painting. I will do it in watercolor and ink...but I have a number of different ways that I can portray it. I am thinking of maybe a sketch-like drawing rather than an exact portrait of the house. Something a little more "artsy". (It's about 12 x 16.) The odd line across the front under the eaves is a shadow line, by the way.
Anyway, I am about ready to get started on this one. I'll let you know what I decide!
It's pouring rain and 55 degrees at the Northwoods cabin today. So how do you like that weather report? Sigh.
