Living Room Interior

Living Room in ShadeI’ve been away for awhile, working on starting up a new interior design business with a partner.  For that new venture, I’ve had to work on some watercolor renderings of interiors.  Here’s a recent one.  I wanted it to look faded, so I did an off-white wash.  I also wanted to emphasize a shadow cast against the wall of picture moldings.  So, I did an angled wash of a Payne’s Gray.  It’s a tight watercolor, since it’s supposed to be an accurate “rendering” of an interior space with an accurate two-point perspective and close interpretations of fabrics and materials, such as the rug and wood plank flooring.  I think I prefer a looser approach.  But, tight watercolors have their place in illustration.  Just think of Beatrix Potter’s pen and ink work, colored with watercolor.
