Grand Manner Longhouse

This is my Grand Manner Indian Longhouse. The main structure is done and I'll begin the landscape tomorrow.

The house was painted strictly by drybrushing various browns, tans and greys over the black undercoat.
I use a golden brown watercolor wash over some of it and I am happy with the results.
This was a practice run, as I am getting ready to paint the Hartwell tavern. I wanted to make sure the technique would work.
I'm pleased with the results and can begin work on the Tavern shortly.

You are right to be pleased: lovely work.

It's not something I know much about so your photos inspired me to spend some time on the internet, reading & looking at the subject.
