Wonderfully rendered. The way you've handled the grass and brick are excellent. My one suggestions is the shadows under the porch are are too gray. Any possibility of adding the brick color as a glaze. I did a quick sample in photoshop.

Nice!

I'd like to still see the brickwork in the shadows on the porch.

Nice work on the tree and I would like to see some shadows from the railing on the left.....it should show with that strong shadow from the porch.

This is the first watercolor that I have done in quite some time. I was commissioned to do this last spring, but I had already ventured off into oils and was trying to get away from buildings, so I avoided getting this done. It was difficult to remember how to "ride that bike" so I really wasn't too happy with how this turned out. Danny was very pleased, so that is what is really important. I am in my catch up mode, so I still have 2 more watercolors that were commissioned a while ago to get completed.

Beverly...My guess is that you recognized right away! Thanks for the nice comments.

laniers...Thank you for the nice comment and the good suggestion! I appreciate that very much.

Helen...The brickwork in the shadows is acually very distinct in the painting...the digital image has lost it. Thanks for your comments!

Alan...Again you point out something that I had never thought about, nor did I see. I was working from photographs on this one and became a slave to them. Thanks for your observations.

Thanks again to all. Can't make any corrections because it is hanging on his wall, but you have given me the courage and motivation to get these next two done! Jim

I knew it was woodguy from the white onthe grass area and other nuances.
