Twin Houses : Watercolour : 15 X 11 inches

This is a watercolour based on the sketch in the previous post. The foliage behind the houses bothers me. At the point where I had finished that part I had half a mind to give up.

Well, I must admit that I am glad I didn't !

Guess, I got carried away and overworked a bit with the detailing on the houses. Like they say, its easy to start a painting but very difficult to stop it.

Your comments, critiques and suggestions please. Thanks


  1. This is wonderful man. Especially the weeds etc. in front of the houses. I also liked the foliage in the background. I think its perfect. The colour diffusions in the brickwork are also beautiful.

  2. Its very good. The foliage is very well done. I happened to miss the last post.. Had I seen it I would have suggested making the houses of little different size.

  3. I just stumbled upon your blog and found it really gud. Your paintings are amazing! Thank god you finished this painting. It really came out very well. The colors of brickwork are fantastic..Foliage is superb! Keep it up! :)

  4. Very good technique. Foliage is lovely and loose. Perhaps you could change the perspective and make the houses a bit less symmetrical to take the painting to a different level.

  5. Fresh, lovely and loose! I like the details as well as the lost and found edges.

  6. Hi
    This is very nice work. I am not too bothered by the foliage behind the houses. But would have liked to see some part of the third dimension for the houses.
