Rust Red Door Hobbit Hole



I had so much fun making this for a friend of mine. It’s on some heavy duty handmade watercolor paper.  I have not painted a large scale watercolor in a long time and this paper behaves a great deal differently. In the end, i like all the bumps and texture in it and it can soak  up so many layers of washes that I may have gotten a little carried away. I was in full on garden planning mode so I added patches of lavender, a pot of rosemary, a hydrangea bush, some hostas, sweet potato vine, a climbing hydrangea, and a sprinkling of red poppies in the foreground fields.
