Winter house. Inktense paint sketch.

Happy Sunday friends,

It was a lazy and slow day for me. I woke up pretty late and decided to do some art. I like drawing houses sometimes, so that’s what I was practicing with today. I used Inktense paints, I think after trying them for the second time, I like more traditional watercolors. Using Inktense paints is very challenging for me, it gets soaked in the paper right away, without letting me blend it. I need to read more about this material, maybe it requires a different kind of paper. I was using watercolor paper this time.

  • I began drawing a sketch with a pencil.

Right in the middle of my work I got some food delivered. Thanks to my husband, today I didn’t have to cook. Panera bread’s soup is always good. The coolest thing about it for me that kids love their soups. I wish they kept making Pumkin soup all year around, but Minestrone is also good.

  • Here the pencil sketch is finished.

  • Now, I begin painting the sky with ultramarine. There are a few white spots, I noticed later. They are from a previous age where I was making some snow effects in the past.

  • Next, I colored the walls with ochre yellow, and brown, and the bushes with plum color, and a little bit of the fence.

  • In this step, I painted the windows with a mixture of black and blue, and the roof with a mixture of red and ochre yellow.

  • This is a last step, where I trace my painting with the black liner. I make the closer lines thicker and further lines thiner. I also added a tree branch in front of the scene like if the observer is looking at the house behind the tree.

Here is the result.

I’m not sure if I like it or not, but I’m happy I practiced today some, because yesterday was too busy. That made me feel like something was missing. Generally I try to do art practice every day, I like experimenting with different materials. I think that drawing is like any other activity needs exercising on a regular basis.

This is really beautiful. I've just recently taken a couple virtual watercolor classes and have it on my goals list to have a dedicated sketchbook and get to it more regularly. Thanks for this lovely painting as fuel and inspiration.

Thank you @barracudadiaries. Yes, making it a habit is the key. Add it in tour daily routine, even it’s small painting, it helps to stay dedicated. Good luck!

What a beautiful painting! I love it! It looks very professional! It reminds me of Christmas morning, when you look outside and you see the snow. I like those memories. 😁 How long did it take you to paint this? Lovely work! 😃
