Whites miskited and some colors added to very wet paper.

I painted some cobalt blue across the fabric to give it dimension, then began painting in the fabric colors.

For years I have been collecting objects, fabric and decorative paper as inspiration for paintings. Since I really like to do these simple still lifes, I decided to go "back to my roots" so to speak and try doing a few more of these.
Here is the set up for this painting.

A young woman contacted me about a house commission for her parents. Seems each time they move, they have a small watercolor of their home commissioned.
Even though she contacted me on the internet, she said my name was familiar. After talking with her, we found out we know people in common! Small world!
This is a very small painting, especially for me - the final framed area will measure only 6 in. x 10 in. I painted it slightly larger so there will be some "wiggle room" for the framer.
With her directions on color - very hard to tell from the photograph I was given - I made some paint color choices and texted them to her for her mother's selection.
Then I began working on the sky, foreground, trees and shrubs.
I hope her parents are happy with the result.
