So I started with the railings. I'm working with a black & white photo - which helps me see color value clearly. The railings came together with a remnant and some tiny checkered seersucker from a shirt.
I chose a roofline fabric - a few darker pieces for the shadow. On to the first floor windows. Yellows, red railings. I think this old feedsack fabric will work for the chimney.
I'm liking the work of Day 1. How odd is this? That orange fabric scrap on the roof formed a bird shape. That was a total accident, just serendipity. Quite fun!
