This was a skill builder exercise for sure. I'm not sure who built the shelf but they didn't make the bottom of the wood brackets the same ;)
There was a lot of dry brush with this and also washing off the back ground brick because I messed it up. Getting the little houses and their shading correct took some thought before I put the brush to it but I'm glad I toughed it out. The actual painting is a little darker as the scan settings were off a bit. Waterclor and HB pencil on 9x12 coldpress watercolor paper.
