San Francisco Victorian
6" x 8", oil

Another painting for DSFDF. This time I tried painting on an all black background, at first I thought never again, but I think I'll give it another try. This one was a huge challenge for me. Several times I was ready to wipe the whole thing off, but Mom gave me some helpful advice and saved it from the garbage can. Thanks mom!

  1. Well aren't you lucky to have such a talented and accessible mom to ask advice of. I think you did a fantastic job. Love the palette you used and the rendering of the sky. The apple doesn't fall far from... oh I'm sure you've heard it many times before.

  6. I like the lively brushwork and the cropping too! I tried painting on black too. Once. Swore I'd do it again but haven't so far!

  7. Always wanted to live in a round turret. I like your rendition the best. It looks like a cozy place away from the crowd; in San Fransisco yet!
