House Portrait Continued – Shutters & Windows

Create Harmonious Neutrals

 

On Palette & Paper

 

Blending color opposites creates lovely neutrals. Here I am blending red and green to create a range of choices for the shutter colors. Shutters in sunlight will appear differently than shutters in shadow underneath porch roof.

Applying first wash.

I like the windows to appear lit from within. To achieve this I apply saturated hues. Again color opposites, this time purple and yellow.

I drop in more water allowing the colors to blend and neutralize on the paper.

When completely dry, I remove the masking.

Masking is removed. Time  to step back, analyze and evaluate before moving on to detailing trim work.
