The other porch below held an architectural outline that suggested an oriental treatment. It's a very common house that you find in the Salt Lake Valley. They are often referred to as "Bungalow" style. I was drawn to the greens and the warm wooden railing that stretched across this one. However, on this one I was not able to stick as closely to the sumi-e style of painting because the yupo paper did not want to "play" well. In other words, I discovered the hard way that proper sumi-e painting is best done with paper that absorbs water. This is not what happens with yupo paper. So I decided to add ink to finish out the outlining on this porch.
