The client I painted this (pictured above) concrete bench and doorway surround for a couple of months ago has asked me to come back and paint the backyard outdoor fireplace in a similar Spanish Mediterranean style, which I absolutely LOVE. I’m very excited for the project and will probably start it next week. So today’s sketch is a rough color/pattern concept (watercolor and pen). (Yes, I do realize that I spelled “mantel” incorrectly in my scribbled notes)…
And since there’s a bit of an orangey-yellow thing going on, I couldn’t resist sharing the cutest “Ernie” from Sesame Street that Mason drew the other day.
