View Full Version : Evening Shade

Hello all! This is a 12"X12" piece on canvas board just painted start to finish totally out of my head. Even though I had nothing to look at (I rarely do a piece without looking at a photo reference) it still feels as though it just sort of came into its own existence or "painted itself". I used various tube acrylics and I normally shy away from inserting buildings into my landscapes because I'm afraid of messing everything up with a lopsided looking structure. This one came out decent and seemed to fit the scene. It was a challenge but I think I learned more in the process. Comments are welcome. Thanks for looking!
