Moravian House – Turret

Moravian House – Turret

Watercolor and gouache

I took a photo of this interesting house about ten years ago, so it has been in the back of mind for a long time.

It’s hard to explain what triggers the emotional need to paint old structures like this. Previously, I have complete a drawing of the completed image, which was sold. When looking back at the photos, I chose a close-up of one section with the interesting sunlight shadows. The challenge was mixing the grays for the rooftops, porch and shadow patterns while bringing out the value shapes.
