Sharing the 5 day Facebook Art Challenge - Day 3

I've been nominated by Frederica @ Frederica's Little World and Lorraine @ Fairy Meadow Miniatures to participate in the Facebook Art Challenge showing 3 pictures each day for 5 days and in turn nominate another artist to do the same - today I nominate Fabiano Fausto

The exteriors of old city buildings are never pristine so this was a great chance to go a little crazy with the dry-brushing of various shades of black/grey/brown mixes on the Parisian facade.

the window box also has the addition of a little moss

Thanks for all your lovely comments on the challenge pics, it's been fun thinking about what to show you. Two more days to go and to be honest I have no idea right now what I'm going to put up for days 4 and 5!

Hi Norma, What a wonderful job of aging you have done on the facade. I hope you were very pleased with how it turned out and photographed.
