Monastery Window


This painting is hot off my painting desk. I always like the idea of painting the inside looking out. This is a window in the monastery we stayed at in Cortona. The view outside is the garden. I think I might try this painting one more time. I am not thrilled with the blue inside walls and might want to try another color. What do you think?

Hi Barbara! I can't wait to begin painting this window--I love your perspectives.
Thank you for your great teaching and encouragements to me in your class.
I am thinking about doing the walls in the buttery colors and then brightening the outside trees--what do you think--will that be balanced?
See you Monday!

I agree w/Libbi re (you) trying buttery or pale yellow walls - what about (another) cat in the window in lieu of one of the flower pots or perhaps under the trees?
