Red Door, St. Augustine, Florida

 A challenge offered in a watercolor group was to paint double doors. Well, I didn't have an idea for traditional double doors. But I have been wanting to paint this iconic red gate attached to a home built in 1898. The red door opens at both the bottom and the top! At 16 Bridge Street, St. Augustine, Florida it has to be the most photographed door in St. Augustine. It is attached to The Countess Guest House.

I used Winsor Newton Cotman watercolor tubes to paint this door. I enhanced this work using a bit of Master's Touch metallic watercolors and a Micron 01 pen.
