Yellow House I

5x7” oil on canvas board. $40
Available on Daily Paintworks here

I went out for a walk the other day, hoping to do some plein air painting. Unfortunately I didn't get any painting done, but I did take some reference photos. Among them was one of this yellow house next to a small meadow, which caught my attention due to the way light was hitting it.

It came out pretty well, and it has given me motivation to paint buildings more often- I have been guilty of avoiding them in the past because they're quite a challenge for me. I think my favourite part of this painting is the blue of the sky reflecting in the windows.
