Blue shutters


....and another 12x18cm oil on canvas. I did this on a very dark background and let it dry overnight. I think I prefer working from dark to light in oil. I am getting better at painting more loosely and this one only took about 30 minutes. From a photo I took on a camping holiday in France about 3 years ago. Must dig out some more, they would make a good series.

I love this Pauline, the colours and the light and shadows work well and make a simple subject into something special.

Thank you, I tried another one similar today but it didn't work. I guess sometimes you can be lucky and things just work out without much efforts.
