"100 SLC Porches, No.35"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.35"
Watercolor  on 10" x 11" Paper

For this porch watercolor painting, I used the wet to dry method.  I lightly drew in the porch with pencil and did a bit of shading.  In this method, the focus seems to be on negative painting.  Focus in on the shaded areas slowly, little by little building those up to be darker.  I did do a bit of dry brushing in the foreground to put some emphasis on the rock path that goes to the porch. I decided to use cerulean blue, dioxazine purple, and yellow ochre.  I really find the muted quality of blended colors wonderful.  I welcome any feedback you may have.  Please check out the progress of the porch paintings on the 100 SLC Porches page.
