Color Study for Canal Houses

I decided to try out some paint colors for the canal houses before trying it in fabric.  I am basically going with a blue/orange complimentary color scheme.  I will be using blues for the sky and the windows and oranges/browns for the buildings.

Here is my painted sketch. I did not have that many paint colors, but this gives you the idea.

Thanks for dropping by.

Well I have to admit I haven't been keeping up with very many of the blogs on my reader. So, here are comments on several of your recent blogs. WOW -- your Over the Sea to Skye is fabulous. It was well worth the wait. I have been so impressed with the various landscape quilts you've done over the last few years. (What, only two or three? They are all great no matter the number and you work full time!)

The newest one is looking good too. I am in awe of your drawing and painting ability. The colors as shown in the water color version look really good. I'll be keeping my eye on your blog to see how this takes shape. What a wonderful way to keep memories from your trip/s. B.
