Tustin "Storybook House"
oil on canvas panel 9x12 inches
not for sale
It was cloudy skies over Tustin again today. When I started the above painting there was no sunlight except what was diffused through thick clouds. I used colors only from the cool side of my palette. I edited out the hedge because it lacked the organic quality of the rest of the foliage. I started at 11:00 am and took the picture below at 2:30 when I finished, so you can see the sun had started to come out by then. What a charming little "storybook house." Kinda reminds me of pea soup...I could have used some, it was a little chilly! I'd like to come back and paint it again on a sunny day.
