First, I painted out the white bistro chair and began painting in the blue sky and blue ocean.
I moved the yellow wicker chair from my office to the living room and wanted to add more yellow to the painting to pick up the color in the chair. I sketched in a white wicker chair using my own chair and throw cushions as inspiration.
I felt the floral design on my yellow pillow was too much and competed with the flowers on the table and also that the angle of the chair was not right.
I paint outside as weather permits so I can really see the colors in daylight. Now that the painting is complete - let's take it inside and hang it over the fire place to see how it looks.
Bentley, my Studio Assistant has been patiently waiting to get a first hand look!
Looks like Bentley approves and is waiting for our next project!
