Comments About This Piece
This could be a group of homes, or neighborhoods in many cities in my country or yours. But this is a scene in Seattle, Washington, in a very old part of the city. While walking threw this quaint part of the city, with all its very steep hills, I came across these homes, seeming to be stacked upon each other. I was struck by the interesting angles made by the walls, roofs, and strong sunlight. I painted this painting with only simple pure colors that are layered upon each other, much like the houses and the shadows, to make more complicated colors as well as darks and lights.
This painting is on heavyweight paper and will need a frame for display.
Watercolor paint is made of pigments suspended in a water-based solution. Watercolor, which refers to both the medium and the finished artwork, is typically applied to paper. It is translucent, and appears luminous on the surface of the paper. Watercolor painting is a very old medium, dating back to the Renaissance when it was used primarily for botanical and wildlife illustration.
Paper is a very common surface for all types of artwork, including photography, printmaking, drawing and painting. Art paper varies in thickness and color. Read the notes section to learn more about the paper used to create this artwork. If not noted as framed, most paper artwork will require framing.
