Five In A Row
Painting - Watercolor And Ink
The name of this painting is Five In A Row. It is an illustrative folk art style watercolor painting of five row houses painted bright cheerful colors. I have always enjoyed viewing these in different areas that I visit or while looking at photographs. They just make you smile. I first drew the art in pencil and then painted in watercolor. I then applied India ink in areas that I felt needed to be emphasized. This is from my imagination and memories of different photographs and places I have seen throughout the years. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Row houses are homes that share side walls and are typically mirror image houses. This style of home originated in Europe in the 16th century. Most of my memories of seeing in person are from the Portland, Oregon row houses downtown and the Painted Ladies of San Francisco, California. While researching about row houses I found information about another community of “Painted Ladies” in Baltimore, Maryland, in specific the Charles Village area. In 1998 to 2003, the residents of Charles Village were encouraged and challenged to paint and spruce up the exteriors of their row houses. There were contests with monetary awards for best results. The result of these contests and the work done is a neighborhood that is now part of iconic Baltimore with pictures of the “Painted Ladies” appearing on travel guides and magazine covers.
