Sketching for Christmas Cards

I was hired by a landscape design studio to produce a watercolor on location, for their Christmas Card. I spent three hour doing it, but I really liked the result. That is the garden in front of the studio.
Actually I got two jobs like this year. The second one was a drawing of a building designed by an archtect called Marcos Tomanik. I often make architectural renderings for him.
I think the building was designed in the sixties, and the hardest part was to find a way to draw the windows (which have a particular design) without making the drawing looking overworked.
I remember to be a little tense because I was too much worried about the results. It is a completely different situation to be hired to do a drawing on location. Not that fun, but pretty good to get some money from!
Here they are:

I took a picture of the watercolor right there:

Beautiful watercolour Eduardo! I love the way you did the foliage in the top left with the overlapping warm and cool greens.

I can imagine the light blinding my eyes, great watercolor.

Beautiful range of greens and that touch of pink a third of the way up in the center makes the whole thing sing.

Sue Pownall said...

These are both great. I love the depth of tones in the watercolour.
