Waterford Colors

A few days ago I posted the ink drawing of this 19th-century house in Waterford, Virginia. Here it is "colorized" in watercolor. This technique of technical pen drawing colored with watercolor on absorbent Fabriano paper is an old format which I used back in the 70s. I've revived it for my current Virginia wine and landscape series and it seems to be working well. I am hoping to show these in a gallery in Leesburg as well as at the Village Winery in Waterford.

Waterford house drawing is watercolor and ink on Fabriano paper, 8" x 10", September 2011.
