Birdhouse

11x15 watercolor on 140 lb Saunders paper I painted awhile back that is SOLD. 
I was learning how to do negative painting and it is easily seen in the leaves.  This small birdhouse was photographed on the way to the frame shop and it was the second time to paint it from this angle.  At this time I'd been doing watercolor about 3 years.  A large orange trumpet vine framed the little house and the first wash was an underpainting of primary colors.
