"100 SLC Porches, No.76"

"100 Salt Lake City Porches, No.76"- Watercolor on 10" x 12" Paper
I love these little cottage like houses.  There are quite a few similar to this one throughout the Sugarhouse area of Salt Lake.  I was especially drawn to this one because of the wildflower like landscape that surrounded it.  It feels like it's nestled in a quiet garden all by itself.  I also liked the detail of the small window above the door.  I started this painting as a pour using permanent rose.  Then I used a bit of ultramarine blue in the sky area.  Then I finished the painting with the puddle style of watercolor painting and a bit of dry brushing.  To view the progress (or to purchase one) of 100 Salt Lake City Porches, click here.  Thank you for visiting and please leave a comment if you are so incline.
