A white house

January 22, 2010

Every painting has become an experiment, a laboratory for exploring color mixtures, brushwork, light. I’ve been studying the reference photo for this for quite some time, agonizing over how I was going to paint it. Finally, the other day, I just attacked it. There’s some touching up to do, but here’s where I ended up when I finally put down the brushes.

11×14, gouache on cold press Crescent board

    This is a really nice composition Ralph. The light hitting the house is illuminating and the perfect spark for this one. Well done buddy.
