    Pacific Grove cottage watercolor

    Here's my third attempt at watercolor. Everything has started to come together now, but it's been a struggle. Painted onto about six layers with with wet on wet watercolor brush at 70-80% thinness, dry watercolor brush for details at about 50% thinness, and "just water" watercolor brush in the background bushes and sky. Hope you like it.

    California's Pacific Grove used to be a Methodist summer meeting area and they still have lots of the little cottages, all well kept up with flowers etc. for landscaping. This cottage is on a quiet side street only about 2 blocks from the Pacific Ocean, and you can smell the salt air and hear the sea gulls and waves crashing in the distance.

    Very nice water color in this painting. Love those charming pink windows!

    I am still trying with the water color. Funny that I could do fine on paper but the digital water color really makes me confused!
