Wednesday's Painting

Last week-end I took a couple of pictures from the back yard of the neighbor's house. Yesterday I painted this watercolor at Art Day. I wasn't happy with it, so when I got home I added a little pastel to help brighten it up and give it some dimension. I've lost either my skill or my taste for watercolor unadorned. It looks flat and the values aren't wide enough. Even as I look around at the watercolors I've done and loved, I feel the urge to just touch it here and there with some pastel.

My house is on the far right, behind the bush. Diana's is the white one in the middle.
