Window to the Past - WIP 2


I forgot to stop and take a photo a few stages ago, I just started painting and kept on going. I have the shadows mostly established now on the wall stucco and adobe bricks and will start texturing the areas more next. I still need to paint what wood is left on this wall, also. At this point, I am trying to decide whether to deepen the values of that sky or not, I know I need to add some ground shadows under some of the closest foliage. Still plenty to do, but I'm still lovin' this one.

The colors in this painting are wonderful. I love the sky just the way it is but then I just wouldn't be brave enough to mess with it.

Thanks Ladies! Sheila and Vicki, when I first saw the photograph what struck me was the perfect combination of complementary orange and blue so that was what drew me into this project. Thanks for noticing the colors.

I hope to have this finished by the end of this week, stay tuned for the results!
