Seaside Shed by Julie Riker

8x10 oil
Thanks to Cecelia for arranging a lovely day for us to paint at her daughter's home near Annapolis! It's a lovely property - on a peninsula, surrounded on 3 sides by water.  
I painted this outbuilding and made it my intention to keep the shadows high key as the whole scene was blown out by sunlight.  The only deep shadow is the interior of the shed seen through the one broken window pane.

Very interesting post Julie. I have been studying your values. This was like a mini lesson for me.

Thanks Mary Beth! I find that value control is difficult to master and something I need to work hard at.
