Fiddleheads, Lily’s and Stilt House

Fiddleheads – Oil on Linen Panel – 9″ x 12″

Liked the looks of this view and, better yet, from the shade of a tree. Took a little over two hours to complete, but the time flew. Really enjoyed this one.

Shadows at Lily’s – Oil on Linen Panel – 9″ x 12″

This one completed over two sessions. Started this early one morning. The shadows across this building caught my attention. The drawing and initial color applications took awhile. Because the light/shadows had changed so much, I decided that it was best to stop and come back the next morning to ensure that I could properly capture the shadows which had initially captured my attention.

Stilt House – Oil on Linen Panel – 9″ x 12″

Started this one early evening. Liked the raw design, though the angle of the building did not yield the shadows I had anticipated. Decided to stick with my inspiration and charge forward. Returned the next evening to finish the details, well, actually once I started I amended several portions of this painting. As I was completing the work and starting my clean-up, a woman reviewed my worked and stated that my greens were wrong. She was referring to the building. Technically, she was right. However, over the course of two hours, at that time of day and at the angle of the building, lighting will change. I pointed out the lighting issue and that the difference was necessary to help give depth to the design. Confirmed that I had held onto my initial vision despite the change in light.
