8"x8" original oil
This painting was both a challenge and was freeing for me. I somehow deleted the photo I had taken of this guest house at my friend's home on the cape. I had done a sketch which I based the painting on, but I hadn't made color notes. The challenge was to get enough detail to create a mood and try to capture some of the details which originally enchanted me. The freeing part was not being tied to a photo and getting to lmake it up as I went. What I really like about this lovely cabin is the turquoise used for the trim and flower pots and the metal sun sculpture hanging by the door.
This is a better photo of yesterday's painting. I am still thinking about making some changes to it.
