Thought I should also post Philippe’s (@Phinomet) version of Mildred’s Coffeehouse (mine was a couple days back) so you could see it from another angle and style! And even better, you get a closer view of the amazing roof (made even more so with his choice of colors).
Philippe had taken a little break from painting, but I’m so happy that he started up again. It’s always nice to have a couple doodlewashers in the house. And again, the dog just won’t have anything to do with it even though we’ve tried to encourage him.
For this doodlewash, he used his Winsor & Newton Cotman Watercolours, although he now wants to switch to M. Graham as well after trying a few quick washes with mine. Even though the Cotman watercolor isn’t as rich, I was impressed at the bold colors he was able to get for this sketch. Philippe has the looser style that I wish I could master and it’s lovely to see what he creates.
We spent part of the weekend wandering around the Kansas City Crossroads District, as this is where my new office is located. It was surprising to see things we never even knew existed, even though it’s only blocks from our house. It’s cool that when you view your city with the eye of a doodlewasher, you see things you never saw before. I think that’s one of my favorite parts of this journey!
