House By The Salmon Falls River

Here I played around with heavier pigments and I used real watercolor paper...Aquarelle 90 lb. paper. It's much more absorbent than bristle board ... it soaked up those pigments really well!
What interested me with this subject were the shapes of the building.... the dark background which makes the house stand out. I was concerned how well I could incorporate the shapes of the foreground grasses and the middle ground bushes in a way to make it interesting, and using the complimentary colors - red/green.
