"100 SLC Porches, No.6"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.6"- watercolor on 10" x 13" paper
This porch is within a few blocks of where I live and I often find my eyes lingering on its wide expanse.  I love its detail and colors.

"100 SLC Porches, No.5"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.5" - 12" x 16" oil on canvasboard
This small stoop caught my eye because of the bright pumpkins and the same orange color that was duplicated in the stained glass of the window.  It's a small sunny home that sits engulfed in a bit of early snow but even amidst all that snow it looks warm and inviting.  I also had fun painting the white birch tree that overlaps the actual covered area of the porch.

A New Area for Watercolors...

I've created a new area to show off my watercolors.  I just felt that the watercolor paintings needed their own area to be displayed.  As I am discovering that watercolor as a medium is quicker to produce an end piece of art.  Therefore I'm figuring that I'll probably have more watercolors to show and thus I'm trying to plan ahead for an area where I can display all of those watercolor paintings.  Please check it out when you get the chance.  WATERCOLRS  or click the WATERCOLORS with photo link down along the righthand side of my Allgood Art Blog.  I welcome any feedback you may have.

"100 SLC Porches, No.4"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.4"- watercolor on 11"x14" yupo paper
This porch I decided to use a limited color pallet when I painted.  I also tried to keep away from detailing too much of the snow on the roof line and in the yard. I really like the play of yellows and purples.

"100 SLC Porches, No. 3"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No. 3"- oil on 11" x 14" canvasboard
I was especially enamored with the orange and brown bricks contrasting with the cream.  I really think it's a striking porch.

"100 SLC Porches, No.2"

Here it is, I finished it last night...
SLC Porch, No.2- 10" x 14" watercolor on cold press
I was fasinated with this porch because of all the fallen leaves and snow.  Obviously, not a well used porch. I chose to do it in watercolor because it has so much white that I thought it would translate well.
