|"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.60"|
Watercolor on 11" x 14" Hot Pressed Paper
Porch No.60 is an older home in the Taylorsville area of the Salt Lake Valley and I thought it might be fun to do it as a red, white, & blue theme to keep it patriotic even more. I really got the idea from a painting that my friend & teacher Colleen Reynolds did. It was a scene where everything was blue & white except for a guy that was wearing a t-shirt that had a flag themed print on it. Colleen added the color red to that section of the painting. I was very fascinated the first time I saw the painting and I thought that this porch was a good candidate for this style. I started with a light flat wash of blue and built up. The last thing I did was add the red color.
