There's work before an oil painting....


First I take photos

Here's one from a room at Arlington Court National Trust

I liked how the light came into the room and hit the seat on the chaise,
plus the light on the floor.

True, there's some artistic license, but that's the fun part of being the artist and making decisions.

1. Decided not to have the net curtain, but show the window with a hint of greenery outside

2. I didn't want the electronic gizmo on the wall (something that's needed in historic properties) but not for my painting

3.  I simplified the furniture/items in the room

4.  Added some extra colour to cushions and the rug which tied the painting together 




Titled:

"Summer Evenings"
Oil on Canvas • (12" x 12")
