This started as just a quick study to understand the color of the shadow part of that wall thinking it would help me try this with watercolor (which would allow me only one shot to get it right). It ended up turning into extended playtime to do things with oil paint that I typically don’t do. I learned a bit about layering with oils thanks to some advice from a friend from art school, Sadie Valeri. This started loose and ended up with hard edges and straight lines. My favorite part was still painting those trees in the background bottom corner (which lead to another painting which I’ll post soon).
It isn’t quite finished, but then it was never supposed to have gone this far to begin with. It just kept going and going. Maybe I’ll finish it someday.
