The colors are dark, very dark. I pushed myself to add more dimension to this design. I started with a simple house sketch. Very simple sketch… At the end, I hope you can see many layers in this design. I hope you can see depth within the house. I also hope you can still see some form of the house. It’s a challenge to work with neutral colors. Grey is hard for me but when I saw the combination with purple, I was hooked. I made several variations. Some variations go very deep into the realm of purple.
I didn’t want a design that was all blue or certain hue of purple. I was desperate for a challenge in this design. However, I was feeling so tired I wanted to give up halfway in. Normally, I’m a night owl but I did a lot stuff on Sunday.
I made two versions of this design that are just nuts. Those designs are separate from the original and I will feature them in my art album. I love them because you can see grey a lot more in one of the designs. I will be featuring the first two designs on google plus. I know the design looks weird. I do hope you like the design regardless. I hope you love the colors. It was a great ride to be on despite being somewhat delirious at the end of it.
