"In the Mood"
6x6 Oil on museum quality panel
Before you question whether you've come to the right blog, yep, it's mine. This was a demo for a student who wanted to paint a dark/moody/mysterious (in her words) painting. It's always a fine line to know what to include in a painting and what to leave out. I did this demo to illustrate how eliminating much of the detail can enhance the feeling of the painting. When we compared her painting to mine..her comment was that I had done a Kelley "Light" version versus her darker version. Great exercise to paint out of one's comfort zone. Would love to hear what you think.
