Welcome to another free watercolor tutorial. This time we are going back in time again, because this is a painting from 2016 – when I still was a watercolor beginner – but very enthusistic. This is what I wrote about the watercolor in 2016:
This building was a reason for my return to watercolor painting. The story of this beautiful house, which is one of the oldest buildings in Detroit, interested me so much that I first made numerous sketches and drawings of it until I wanted to try it with color. The ransomed Gillis House was built from 1876 to 1878 and has an eventful history. For several decades it stood empty and rotten and fell apart until it was restored last year. Artistically, I’m more interested in the building’s decay stages, but I’m thrilled that this building was taken care of before it was lost forever.
