Shed Late Afternoon



12 x 12 oil on panel, SOLD

This is what I'm going to call quasi plein air, because I was looking out our window at this backyard scene. We have a whole lot of big trees so we always have a ton of stripey shadows this time of day. I had just painted some trim on the house and turned around and saw this and decided it was time to switch out paint and subject being painted. But oh man, really hot out there, so I painted it through the window in the cool of the A.C. I should try it again tomorrow out in the heat and see if the outcome is much different. Maybe at a different time of day too.

Glad you like it, Angela, and yes, I wussed out in the AC and I'm sure glad I did. I actually was even hot inside the house, pretty sad! But it all worked out well :)

Great shadows! This would make a really fun Jigsaw puzzle as well as a terrific painting.

Ta peinture est forte en couleurs chaudes, il y a un aspect de chaleur qui passe, le calme aussi , j'aime beaucoup!
