Luminous objects & brickwall in watercolor

Luminous objects & brickwall in watercolor - student project

That took me longer then expected, but it was totally worthy :)

Thank you Olga for this wonderful class! I loved to create the light in that window and had extra fun adding the snow!

There are definitely some things to improve there - my base color for the wall could be a bit lighter and the bricks a bit more vibrant... The washes on the windows are not as smooth as I would've liked because the paint was drying pretty fast (even though I'm enjoying painting winter scenes, its a hot summer here in Brazil!). The bricks are not very straight, but I kind of like this way... the shadows underneath them really makes a difference and adds volume to the piece.

 

Here are some pictures of the process:
