Only another evening to go!!! I've deepened the background, added some shadows and removed the masking from the highlights. I have to put the shadow under the car to bring it forward and add the details. Perhaps pump up that front tire and truely give it its markings.
After the initial (step1) I felt the house was not sitting properly in the composition it was determined the lens distortion in my photograph must have been throwing it off so an adjustment was made to the horizon line. Step two included adding more color to all elements and using a ground sea salt technique to give some texture to the gravel driveway.
Not much leftto do but the details and the large tree that stands on the left side of the house.
I presently have to finish paintings for Saint Davids Art Show on Oct.23&24 then I can finish this house
I am mainly a watercolor and Pastel artist but I am open to various mediums.
I have been painting since 1992.
I have travelled alot and have sold works and prints internationally. My works have also won awards. I used to be a member and for a short time president of a local art club however I found the Politics and Personalities interfered too much with my time that could be put into my work.
I live on the east coast of Canada and I paint our local beauty as well as the Carribean and the Mediterranean.
