Watercolor Demonstration 6
'Corner Video Store'

This painting was completed using a 12-tube Winsor & Newton set,
which I received from the Placerville Arts Association as part of the Winsor & Newton Award.

Initial Drawing   Initial Drawing
While attending the KC Filmmakers Jubilee in Kansas City, I spotted an interesting looking shop in the heart of town and sketched it with a 6B Mars Lumograph pencil.
     
Sky   Sky
This graded wash was made up of Cobalt Blue and Winsor Blue leading to some heavily watered down Lamp Black. In this case the very un-original blue sky was meant to compliment the bright red building.
     
Foreground   Foreground
The foreground was painted using a mixture of Burnt Umber and Raw Umber. I had originally planned to paint this area in greater detail, but ended up being satisfied with this minimalist look.
     
Red   Red
Most of the building was made up of red brick, which I tried to re-create using a variety of reds (Burnt Sienna, Scarlet Lake and Alizarin Crimson) with some Cobalt Blue added here and there.
     
Neutrals   Neutrals
The shadows and other neutral areas were created using a muddy mixture of blues and browns left over from the previous steps.
     
Colors and Details   Colors and Details
I wasn't crazy about the Winsor Green included in this paint set, so I mixed Yellow Ochre and Winsor Blue to make the trees in the background. A combination of Scarlet Lake and Cobalt Blue made an acceptable purple shade for some of the remaining details.
     
Finishing Up   Finishing Up
I continued using the purple mixture (above) in thin layers to bulk up the red and gray areas, then began spattering the painting with flecks of Raw Umber to help further suggest detail. This is how the finished painting looks on my art website.
