Upcoming Workshop preparation – Sunlit Doorway


Preparing for the upcoming workshop at Burton Joyce art group. We’re going to do this sunlit doorway scene. We will be painting sunshine again, or at least the effects of it which are usually cast shadows and highly contrasting surfaces.

This is from a photo of an old doorway that my sister Janet took and let me have as painting reference.
The sunlit wall standing out against the dark background and the shadows cast by the flowers growing out of the wall over the door are good fun to try and capture. They provide the wow factor that every subject should have to make it worth painting.
