This post is for Frank. I knew that if I mentioned that I didn’t like the end result with the stone wall and picket fence, he would correct it digitally for me and show me what it would like like without them. I decided to go ahead and do the elimination for myself to save him the time.
The Color Scheme is Analogous with split complements, orange as the dominant color. I liked the patterns when it was just an ink drawing. When I added the watercolor, I felt the stone wall and fence did nothing for the composition or the mood of the sketch.
Still too busy. The fence is distracting.
Plein Air Sketchbook Painting: drawn first with fountain pen followed by watercolor. Color scheme is based on the throw of the twelve-sided die: Analogous with split complements, orange dominating (Red Orange, Orange, Yellow Orange with Violet Blue and Blue Green)
