Day 14- 30 Paintings in 30 Days!
I have long been influenced by the achictectural style of Frank Lloyd Wright. Last April, I did a value study that is pictured below, and used it for my background of this painting. Of course, I didn't follow it exactly, but it gave me a good start. Last year, I did 30 minute studies every day, and now, I can use all of those design studies to incorporate into my current paintings. I tried to stretch myself to use different colors this time, because so many of my paintings are red and golds. Only one day till my illusionary workshop, so this was another warm up for that. This painting is 10" x 10" and is available for $125.
