Watercolor Portraits and Landscaping

Reference Photo

This past week was about landscaping. Stephen Strickhausen (check out his 1410 Realty Group here) sent me this photo of a new home and let me play around with the landscaping a bit.

Designing a landscape on paper is much easier than in reality. Notice the red flowers coordinating with the red door? Oh yeah, that was planned.

Landscaping is a skill. Many of you don’t know this, but I have a very active floral adviser on my staff. Her knowledge of flowers, bushes and plants-that-repel-deer-and-rabbits is mind-blowing and I consult with her any time a mysterious, unknown plant pops up in my reference photos. Or, in this case, where nothing appears in the photo. This woman, is my mom. Thanks Mom! 🙂

I’m always looking for new watercolor house portraits. If you have a home you would like painted send me an email. I’d love to work with you!
