Painting Of A Gazebo, An Example From An Art Lesson.

Here is a painting I did that was inspired by an art lesson I was giving. I was so pleased with the lesson and the material that came out of it I decided to do it for my own pleasure.

This is a fantasy composition where I used several photographs and composed the picture.

I did several sketches first and then painted it starting with the background. I used a wet into wet for the sky and background.  I normally do several layers of wet into wet technique to get it to the intensity of color that I wanted but instead, I  worked with more intense colors in the primary stage to keep the background undeveloped.

Parts of the painting was done like drawing by using the tip of the small brush. I did a lot of areas in layers like the flagstones, the grass, bushes and trees. I am happy with the gazebo itself being white. I kind of wished teh sky was a little darker behind it that would have brought it out more.

I still might touch it up a little before I put it in a frame. I expect to sell it for $150.00.
