Hunt House, in gouache- sold

I got out early this morning and painted the Hunt House, a historic home in East Providence. It's done with gouache on gray Strathmore sketch paper, about 5.5" x 8".  The road on the bottom of the painting is just the gray of the paper.
The hardest part of this painting- what color is yellow in shadow? It seemed very blue at the top, just under the roof, but much lighter at the bottom of the building. I painted it and wiped it out a couple of times before finally settling on a dull greenish color with hints of yellow ochre.

Email me for price.
