Spanish Colonial on Turtle Creek

This stunning Mediterranean manor was really difficult to photograph because it is east-facing and predominately white. That means in the morning it’s bathed in sunlight to the point that there is no shadows to help define the architecture, but in the afternoon it’s completely in shadow. It took me several trips at different times of day to get photographs with enough contrast to work from. The house has a ton of beautiful tile detailing which I took lots of close-ups of in order to have enough information to work from. It was tough to get the right amount of contrast in the watercolor as well, but the final painting turned out beautifully.
