It took me a while to draw this "simple" painting. I wanted to make sure the perspective was spot on. To the left is the first wash of the building.
Next, I whetted the wall down and laid in another wash along with some darks in the stone. While wet, I pulled some of the paint off to keep those areas light.
When the painting dried, I masked the areas to keep the whites or the stone light.
When the masking fluid dried I began laying in some darks to establish the lines in the stone and some shading on the door.
Next, I wet the door and put down a light gray where the light is reflected on the door. I mixed burnt sienna and madder lake for the doors color. Using a brush with clean water I blended the two areas together.
I am having fun with this one because it has been quick loose washes so far. My goal is to get it done for a show coming up.
