View Full Version : Red Cabins or Why is the Sky Blue WIP

09-20-2006, 12:11 PM
First let me say I’m like that contestant from the talent show, “I have no professional training.” I don't show my work very often.

I wanted to paint something fast after I got home from work last night. Wanted to do a more contemporary painting and wanted some bright colors. This is it so far. Loosely based on two cabins in a ‘living” ghost town I visit a couple times a year. Size is 18” x 24” C & C welcome.

Welcome to the forum, Dan.

Your painting is lovely. The inversion of the colours works well.

great composition and colour - I really like it. Thanks for showing us! Just love that blue grass!
I went to a workshop last year and the tutor emphasised that we should have that freedom to paint anything whatever colour, if we so choose!

Please don't be shy to show us more, and welcome!:)

Thanks all for the encouraging words, guess I won’t put my art supplies on (insert favorite online auction site here) for sale. It was fun to use the bold colors and to work fast, I learn something new with every brush stroke.
