House at IMA



Oil...9"x12"

This was the final painting session from my class. We painted from the shade, looking toward one of the Lilly houses on the grounds of the IMA. The challenge was to capture the light of late evening and keep the house simple, looking for light/dark and warm/cool contrasts. I took the liberty to change the sky to a warmer yellow rather than the blue, but kept the same value. The class did a great job considering this was only their 5th painting.
