Prabal and me decided to paint this old house after scouring our old pics.
This time I had 2 things in mind
1. make a tonal value sketch and plan before I start applying paint
2. keep the perspectives right (by following the eye-line)
I think I got both right to a fair extent. But could not refrain from committing the same old mistakes :
"darks are too dark" (i almost used undiluted mixes) - which Prabal calls is anti-purist or acryllic-style :)
I stuck to the reference as I found the tree in the front and the clothes-line interesting. Prabal however customized it a bit.
This time, I also experimented with the masking fluid to save the whites.
