This watercolor proved to be my most challenging house portrait ever. I had never painted a night sky portrait before, only sunsets. It took a while to get the sky dark, yet not too dark. The lights in the photographs I worked with were the most dominant feature. I had to make sure they were toned down enough to create the glowing effect needed and yet not overwhelm the painting. The client was pleased with the result and note cards made from the painting are on the agenda.
