The Sunroom

Oil Painting by Pat Fiorello

I've wanted to tackle this subject for a while in oils. I did it in watercolor several years ago  and the wet into wet approach worked really well. But had to approach it differently in oils. The challenge was to keep a pattern of sunlight despite the busy-ness of the subject matter. I started it several months ago and put it away- almost ready to scrap it, but the other day pulled it out again, restated the light passages and am now declaring it complete. The lesson of the day was never give up- you just might not be finished yet.
