House

This house was so much fun to paint. I found an old ball-pen sketch from about 3 years ago and decided to use it as reference for a new painting. While the first wash was drying I painted the two little sketches. I am still looking for ways of simplification, spare out details and just paint color shapes. I am happy with the result this time but I decided to play with it in Photoshop to find out how a perfected version would look like.

Es hat viel Spaß gemacht, dieses Haus zu malen. Ich habe eine alte Kugelschreiber Skizze von vor 3 Jahren gefunden und beschlossen, sie als Vorlage für ein neues Aquarell zu benutzen. Während der erste Farbauftrag trocknete habe ich diese beiden kleinen Skizzen gemalt. Ich suche immer noch nach Wegen der Vereinfachung, dem Weglassen von Details und dem Malen von klareren Farbformen. Ich bin diesmal ganz glücklich mit dem Resultat, aber dann habe ich noch ein wenig in Photoshop herumgespielt, um herauszufinden, wie eine optimierte Variante aussehen könnte.

  1. Hmm, it’s interesting your wanting to simplify … but you’ve also included those very enigmatic towers behind the house, towers composed of lines in the first watercolor … I think I know this desire to simplify. All the versions are profoundly interesting. I am partial to the last one and its eerie light. A shaft of light seems to come from the sky and catch the roof. Well, actually, the second to the last is marvelous in a special way too — the different panels of color around the sections of the house. But that first one with the towers has an “electric” feel to it — particularly the shadows falling across the ground in front of the house. The photoshop goes even further in the “electric” direction! As though a lightening bolt has struck …. You have a vivid visual imagination.
