Southern Colonial Home – Featured Art Print

 

In keeping with the New Orleans theme from my last post (New Orleans Victorian), I wanted to take a different approach to the architectural details found in the homes located within the Garden District in New Orleans. In this print, I used a sketching technique and kept it strong and bold to highlight the lines and details of this beautiful home. The black and white aspect keeps the visual experience focused on the details of the shapes in the scene. The end result is a strong visual statement of the beauty of this mansion nestled amongst the plants on the property. Thoughts?

New Orleans Victorian – Featured Art Print

 

The setting is the Garden District of New Orleans, Louisiana. This area is known for tree-lined streets with large mansions. The district is like stepping back in time with the beauty of the different architectural styles these homes represent.

For this particular print, I used a gothic oil technique that uses strong brush strokes and warm earth tones creating an old world look. I created this print to not only look and feel “old world”, but to also focus on the intricate architectural details typical with Victorian Mansions. Thoughts?
