Watercolor on toned paper, 8 and a half by 11 inches. This design is a classic "storybook cottage" influenced by American homes of this style built in the 1920's and 1930's. Full plans are not developed yet. My watercolor technique is dense and in some ways, influenced by American and European impressionism, as well as English 19th century watercolors. The English were the masters of such subjects, of course, painting REAL cottages that were old and in disrepair, and were often torn down some time after a painting was made. I use very small brushes, and only limited broad washes. A strong underdrawing in gray tones is of great importance in these types of paintings. Enjoy!
