Sketch of Rainbow Row in Charleston, SC. by Jennifer Branch

Rainbow Row

Charleston, South Carolina

Original Watercolor Painting on Paper, 8" x 6"

Private Collection

Rainbow Row in Charleston, SC is a must see tourist attraction - and also absurdly gorgeous! Thirteen Georgian houses on East Bay Street are painted in sherbet colors with dark shutters enhancing the bright colors. They were completely renovated in the 1930's from completely rundown. Now they are one of Charleston's main attractions and gorgeous to paint!

This is a simple, sparkly sketch with a basic light surrounded by dark value pattern. I had to cut out the horse and carriage since they were too distracting. As for the cars, part of the charm of Charleston is going back 100 years, so cars were out!

I used pen and ink to finish off the sketch. I wanted a fun, happy feeling with the rainbow colors.

If you're interested in the painting process, there's a video and painting demonstration on:

This is just such a fun, happy sketch for anyone who loves Charleston as much as I do!

The original watercolor painting is on deckle edged Twinrocker handmade watercolor paper. Reproductions are cropped to exclude deckle.
