dark house

Arches paper 9" x 12". painted in ~ 3 hours.

this is a photograph that i tore from a magazine a year or so ago and got around to painting this week. the point of the photo was the dark slanting light and the dark tones of the house set against the darker sky.

i use photos in this way to stretch my painting in a specific direction. or to provide a theme when i feel dried out. or as a retreat from painting "my way" because i am dissatisfied with how my painting is going.

i admit, i've started this blog at a time when i'm frustrated with my painting progress.
