Here is my second painting that I'm entering in the "Scenes of Tustin" juried show. I'll find out next week if they got into the show. The McCharles House is one of many beautiful Victorian style houses in Old Town Tustin. It is a tea house (I don't think that's what it's called but can't think of a better term right now) and they also have small weddings there and special events I think. Anyway, it's a charming place and the food is good too!
This started out as a poured watercolor. Usually I would use mainly just red, yellow and blue and let them mix on the paper to create the other colors. For this painting though, since the house is green (a much brighter pea green than I've painted it) I also used a green paint. It is definitely a green painting, isn't it? Of course, I love green paintings - they are my favorites. I think it doesn't have the look of a traditional poured painting because there is so much green in it but really, if the house is green and the foliage is green the painting is going to be green, right? I'm happy with the soft, antique effect the muted greens gave to this painting.
I work in just about every art medium I can get my hands on with my favorites being watercolor and silk painting. I love to experiment with different mediums and styles of painting. I try to paint every day and will post my paintings here as I finish them. I really appreciate any comments you may have on the paintings.
