Hi Guys. So, I have always loved the look of watercolor and ink house portraits. The illustrative look, the visible pen lines, the watercolor painting. So I've been giving it a go myself. I wanted to share for some feedback to see how I can improve them and how I can go back in and fix some of the mistakes. My biggest issue I feel is with proportion and/or placement of features among other things including the watercolor itself. Any and all feedback would be appreciated. For all the watercolor house portrait artists or urban sketchers out there and watercolorists, how do you guys approach this type of piece? I feel like i wanted to ask something else, but I can't remember. These are photos of the paintings. The photos aren't great quality and I can resubmit when Im near them tomorrow.
This one is cropped because the reference photo was cropped exactly like it with the yellow apartment building being the focus.
This is another apartment building
Disclaimer: The yellow apartment building is a family member's apartment from 35 years ago and the house is my house. The other apartment building was found on a google search I can't remember from where but I searched "Brooklyn apartment buildings"
