Little Red - Oil on Canvas Panel - 6" x 8"

Little Red – Oil on Canvas Panel – 6″ x 8″

Painting at the house of a friend, I found this abandoned wagon sitting at the edge of a flower bed. The play of light on this find caught my eye and refused to let go. I had no choice but to paint it. Made a few quick sketches to get a feel for the effect of the sunlight, then moved fast to lock the drawing and shadows in place. Once the shadows and light were in place, the rest went relatively easy, although the background was a concern. Had to indicate the foliage without getting caught up in all of the details.
