Painting the Bricks

I have finally painted the bricks after four years; I had finished sculpting the brickwork right before I had my son. The walls are parchment -- warmer than the natural color of paper clay. The brick borders around the windows are now rusty red. I am not sure how I feel about the color scheme yet. I was so used to the white.

 

This is a house in our neighborhood that inspired the colors.

I think the painted bricks look great! The Victorians liked color and decoration on everything! I know what you mean when you say you are not sure yet because you are so used to the former look... that happens to me. If I wait a little while, I usually learn that I love the new look better than the old look!

Thanks! I think I should have used lighter washes of brown instead of red. The color didn't match the shade I envisioned. But it is photographing well.
