The Smock Exchange - scene

The Smock Exchange - scene

Client seeking Southern Charm Boutique as biggest selling item is the smocked clothing. Wanting something with wrought iron, pretty flower boxes, black roof, topiaries, magnolia tree, wrought iron table and chair with sweet tea being served. The wrought iron spiral staircase leads to the resale boutique upstairs, downstairs one finds the new boutique. Two distinct sides to the business. The image was inspired by a photograph provided to me of a row home in Charlestown, South Carolina. The client actually wanted three floors but due to the size constraints, two floors was the maximum we could do without having to shrink the illustration smaller.
