Look thru my window
This is acrylics on a 16x20 canvas. Is another painting from my study of light book. I wanted to try drawing a still life and try to acheive the glow from the candle.The most challenging for me was drawing and painting the brass candle holder and knowing where to put the light.I am still not sure I did it right. If I were to do it again, I would not put the brick pattern.
In my original instructions it said to do just a dark mottled background around the window. I didn't really care for it so I put in the brick. Now I am concerned its a tad to busy. What do I like-- the serenity that this picture conveys.In my other painting I posted one of the comments was I should try applying the techniques I have learned to an original painting. Thats coming next. Bye for now.
