I don’t know about you but, during a stay in San Francisco, any one of these 6 houses would be fine to me! 😅 The view should be epic from one of the rooms of these houses, don’t you think so? .
Photo edited entirely with my #beboypresets (Pack 1). Head to my story to see the Before/After.
The Milkman, the Paperboy, evening TV...🎵 Tbt to the Painted Ladies Houses on Alamo Square, San Francisco. Was happy I found them this time 😁 And me having a whale of a time in the Museum of Ice Cream 🍦

Little painting in the sketchbook last night while hanging out at @figandthistle, from photo reference of Alamo Square I took during a break in the storm on the walk over. Tried a few new techniques I’ve been meaning to incorporate. The first is carrying a tube of white gouache to use with my portable watercolor palette (and water brush). The second is to use the pencil and eraser (soft @blackwing) like another brush during the painting process, instead of just using it as a tool for the underdrawing. Painting in very low, warm light made it impossible to tell what colors were what, and also compressed the values, so I just tried to focus on value and relative warm/cool. Overall I think there’s a lot successful things happening here, and I’m excited to keep pushing the process forward.
“Whatever happened to predictability. The milkman, the paperboy, evening tv?How did I get to living here? Somebody tell me please! This old world's confusing me. With clouds as mean as you've ever seen... Ain't a bird who knows your tune.
Then a little voice inside you Whispers, Kid don't sell your dreams, so soon. Everywhere you look, everywhere you go
There's a heart (There's a heart), a hand to hold onto. Everywhere you look, everywhere you go, There's a place, of Somebody who needs you. Everywhere you look. When you're lost out there and you're all alone, A light is waiting to carry you home. Everywhere you look. Everywhere you look.” #paintedladies#alamosquare#sanfrancisco#california#FULLHOUSEorbust#innerchildfulfilled#singlelady#valentinesday#wee#lovelovelove
