INDEPENDENCE WAY

Topics: buildings, condominium, house portraits, painted on commission, pen & ink

The majority of my work is watercolor with only the occasional pen and ink. The condominium portrait shown was a challenge in creativity: show enough to make the owner proud, but leave out surrounding material belonging to the neighbors. The process is a little easier with free-standing homes as most times there's a natural cutoff separating neighbors. It's usually easy enough to eliminate the neighbor's house and replace it with vague background trees or bushes, sometimes giving the impression the portrait property is larger than it actually is.
