"100 SLC Porches, No.45"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.45"
Watercolor on 10" x 14" Paper
Quite often I'm cruising quickly by on my bicycle past this porch as it is along a hill in the lower Avenues area.  But a couple of weeks ago I forced myself to go more slowly with my camera in tow and captured it. I like to think of this porch as an understated refined beauty.  I start this porch painting with a series of flat washes in a mixed green and a watered down phathlo blue.   Then, I proceeded with a bit of puddle painting to reach the final result. I limited my color pallet for this painting to phathlo blue, medium yellow, burnt sienna, and just a bit of crimson red.
