Another Small Sketch

A small painting featuring a window with black shutters on a blue gray wall

Rock Hill Window.  Approx 4"x7", oil on linen. 2013

A small sketch done in the studio: I wanted to take a simple subject and paint it well. Most of my attention was given to paint thickness and edge work but there is also some color and temperature variation in the wall.  The whites have a bit of cadmium yellow in them which isn't very noticeable in this photograph.
